Dunno about stock, But my SCT on looney with my mods in signature, I hit 28lbs unless I am in overdrive, If I am in OD without hammering it enough to drop a gear I will hit 35lbs of boost... Hope this helps!

My boost is significantly lower that that. When I was stock I would hit about 28 psi when I was really getting into it.

Now that I have my SCT I only see about 22 psi or so when I am really getting into it.

Hope this helps.

This is odd for custom tunes especially DJ's. Most tuners are making less boost than stock unless you have head studs. My IDP tunes usually stay under 28 psi with a max of 30 to 31.

Well since I got my boost fitting in the right spot(should of tapped the elbow the first time) I can get accurate readings. Laying into it from a stop I am around 23-25. Hammering on it just enough so it wont down shift I have seen 28+.
