50psi!!? on a stock charger that would be a waste and not good for the charger. Most experts say about 32psi is about all you want I have thirty six and they are telling me its too high so I'm fixing it with my programming. I'd say high 20's real low 30's
honestly your best bet is to try and find the compressor map for the turbo that is on your truck. That will show you using a simple formula what boost levels are efficient for the particular turbo you have. I dont know all the details for the lly and lbz, but a little research cant hurt especially if you are running very high boost. It is more likely that you will make better HP on lower boost if your turbo is at peak efficiency.
alright let me refrase the question I have the edge juice w/ att and the hot setting. right now i dont run the hot code unless some one is tail gating me but when i do my boost alarm comes on. i know that you should not run the hot setting with out the trany work but correct me if i am wrong, usually the trany limps when in 4-6 gear. soo what is the most boost i can run on my stock turbo so i can check out my hot code in 1-3 gears.
