I am curious as to what boost numbers I should be seeing. Going by what's in my Sig. I used one of the taps provided in the CFM intake for my boost hook up. I can see 37# with no problem about 3/4 throttle!? If I take off hard with the truck as soon as the turbo start's to spool up the tires start beaking loose ( not going up in smoke just spinning enough to hear it ) I am not saying this is a bad thing but it would not do this before I added the Boost Fooler. I wan't to make sure I am not over boosting, is 40# ok with these trucks? Between listening to the 5" no cat and the tires breaking loose I am going to wear the truck out before I get the Trans work done and the Smarty hooked up:lol3:
Any Thoughts?

Thanks, at what point do you need head studs with these trucks? With my ford I would hold my breath anytime I went over 40# I am quickly appreciating the durability of these Cumminns:thumbsup

Between 45 and 50psi. Then, with just studs, you'll be good till about 60psi.
