ive been searching for some specific information and cant find anything i need.

my truck is a 215 12v with a number 4 tst plate and a 14cm banks quick turbo housing and wastegate, my question is that my truck will knock on 40lbs of boost under a big load, now i hear most stock applications only push about 20, is 40 too much for the stock turbo and how is even adjusted that high, by the wastegate or a boost elbow?

real quick, when i start my truck the oil pressure gauge in the dash takes about 3 seconds before it reads, is that a sender thing or a dodge thing, the motor is not makeing any funny noises so im sure it has pressure upon start.

35 psi max is what you want to preserve the turbo and head gasket.
Buy a boost elbow from ebay to turn it down.

There is about a 3-5 second delay in the oil pressure electronics.

I got the same thing, good to know there's just somewhat of a delay...
