My Ford dealer say's that it should be around 118 to 124. The folks at Spartan agreed. BTW, your Ford dealer has a special tool for bleeding the air out of the system. I had the same trouble till I took it in and had them bleed the system, now it works fine. Love my 08 w/6.4 and Spartan 250 tune!!!

Its not really a special tool, it's just an air-lift system. Snap on markets it as RADKITPLUS. It's a pretty slick unit, I use it all the time.
