I would think you should get more than that. I know you would be able too unless you are loosing boost somewhere at the intercooler boots ect... or cuz you need a new air filter.

join the club..... you're the third (including me) to have this issue. im making 19psi at 1/2 throttle, 22 at wot. the other guy has a 99 w/ the hx35, both of us have our wastegate lines blocked off.

is your fuel pressure sender hooked up and working? thats the only piece of info that ive been told that could be helpful. someone posted the edge wont work right w/o a fuel pressure reading.

only other things are a boost leak, or possible vp44 wire tap issue (THIS IS NOT A REAL ISSUE, just something i suspected because its the only connection that can effect performance thats NOT plug and play.) i double checked mine, but until the issue is fixed i will not rule it out.

I'm only getting 19 psi of boost out of my 2001 model with an Edge Juice with Attitude. It makes the same boost no matter the setting (stock, 1-5). I would suspect any kind of boost or manifold leak would likely prevent the stock setting from making full, stock boost, correct?

Thanks,
Tommy

no sir, no leaks, exhaust back pressure is actually blowing the wastegate open, you can put a spring on the wastegate, my hy35 will hold 26psi that way, and dropped egt's 300 deg

I am not sure but do your year trucks have a plug with a vacum line that goes on the wasgate. If so just take the plug off

the hy35 will blow open at 22 psi with the wastegate line completly blocked off.... you gotta add spring pressure to get more boost

I installed a brass ball valve and now I can dial in or out the pressure I want. Wide open I'm at 22-23 and with it closed down 2/3 I'm at 33 psi. Thats with the hybrid... Chris

yes the bigger turbo will beable to push a lot more boost that a stocker. hx35 can push quite a bit more than the hy35 also
