What's Normal?

Under no load and light to medium acceleration, what is considered normal turbo boost? I get about a 10 (first notch) on the meter. Just wondering if that's what it's supposed to be.

What do you show on a wide open throttle acceleration.

The most I've ever seen under light load (going up a hill or something) is 20. To my knowledge I've never had it at WOT. I'm not having boost issues (at least I guess I'm not), I'm just curious as to what is normal under those conditions.

Not sure they wil hit 35 stock. If all you will hit is 20 psi might have a boost leak.

Okay, but again, I've never really had it under any load at all. I don't tow or haul anything...not even a boat. I just climb a hill from time to time. That being said, I just assume it's never been in a position to need a lot of boost. Am I wrong?

Yes, it may be, that's why I asked. This is the first diesel I've had with any kind of boost gauge so I don't know what normal is.

Completely stock and non-tuned? Again, it does hit 20 going up even the smallest hill...even the freeway on-ramp.
