Boost question.

At wot I am only pushing 35 psi of boost. No real issues with the truck I am just curious as to why others are getting so much more. I am tuned with an h&s. I haven't done too much to it yet. I ordered a delete pipe and ordered the wrong one so I only deleted the filter. I plan on doing an intake and full exhaust yet. Just curious if that's why I'm falling short and its smoking pretty good at wot. Thanks

Edit: defuels are all off.

That is low for stock intake anyways. You need to check for boost leaks. What are your egts?

Mine made a huge difference after I added the CAI. I never have really noted the highest ever yet, I guess I don't ever really go all out as I worry about hurting something I can't afford to fix.

Huh, 35 is a bit low for a 6.4... like Confederate said check intercooler boots, up pipes for leaks, check if your tuner has been updated... and what tunes have you tried?

Ive been running the hd300 tunes. Performance mainly. Never got around to looking at it last weekend. I got distracted and took off the running boards and get them repainted.
