Mid to upper 20's, a little over 30 if you unplug the wastegate, butt hats rolling the dice, IMHO.

i have the juice with attitude and when i get up to about 2500 rpms the display says I only have around 7. Do you think its reading it wrong or the waste gate is bad.

I have a TC performance chip with exhaust and intake and I am getting only 15 psi. When I had an edge I was getting 20 psi with the same set up. You should get more than 6 for sure, but it may vary depending on your set up and truck. I don't think every truck is going to be exactly the same. I am trying to get up to the 25psi with mine now, good luck.
