That's right. Mine won't make 20 unless I have a load behind it.

I read somewhere on here that boost pressure that high (+30psi) are what is causing engine failures. Is this true?

The better question is:
"How many tuned trucks have had turbo failures? How many of those were from overspeed?"

The jury is still out on that.

I've read about more stock trucks with turbo failures than tuned trucks. Of course not everyone posts that they had a turbo failure either.


Seems like a craps shoot with the original turbo. Some last forever, others fail miserably.

I noticed today my boost numbers were almost nonexistent, maybe would only get to 10 pounds, but only when I really got on it, the rest of the time it was on zero. No smoke or odd noises, but power is certainly down. When the boost does finally come it it takes much longer then it used to. Would the outside air temps of over 106 F cause this? Or am I on the way to the turbo going out? Mine is 2011 with 16k on the clock.
