what can I expect out of a factory turbo

Ok so how much boost can I get out of a factory turbo without cooking it? I have an '02 F-350 and I bought an edge evo 2, afe stg 2 intake, it has gauges and exhaust and is soon getting the 6.0 IC conversion. I have not put any of the aftermarket stuff on yet but I want to know how far I can go with the stock turbo.
Thanks, Darin

Depending on how long you want it to last, I'd try to keep it well under 30, maybe 27 max. I've never blown a stocker, so I may be low. I also tow alot, which makes it a little worse

When I had the stock injectors and the TS chip I could hit 30 easily. Once I put the stage 2's in the turbo lasted about 150 miles. I could easily push 30-35 # real easy. With what you have I would say you will be fine.

anythign over about 26PSI with a stock turbo is useless anyway. The air over that is so hot and turbulant that it wont help anything, and acutaly may performe worse than the lower boost level.
