Hey guys. I am a 7.3 guy and know little to nothing about the 6.0s. I was talking with a guy the other day and he was saying that he pushes 35 psi. I said is that with a chip or something? he said no its all stock. really 35 psi?!?! that much stock? I think my 7.3 is only good for 12 to 15 stock and 25 to 28 ish hyped up on the stock turbo. now aftermarket turbos are a different story.

I can peak 30 psi in OD sometimes but 35 is to much. Stock, he'd be blowing hgs left right and center.

I can peg my 35lb gauge. on my xtreme race tune going up grades all the time. IIRC before I ran with the tunes, i'd see around 30 regularly.

Well my 04 up until a couple days ago would hit 32 all day with my Looney tune. After speaking with Vivian about this she informed me since my strategy was old I wouldn't get the same HP as one with a new strategy. So to make a long story short, I took my truck in and had my PCM reflashed. Immediately I notice my boost was way lower, WOT I was lucky to get 27. Vivian re-sent my tunes with my new strategy and even then my boost was "only" 27. What's weird is though I'm not getting as much boost I can tell I'm getting more HP, seems to be more on the bottome end, which is where I like it anyway...
