Ex six hoe Owner / Just got the 08 F450 4 X 4


I have made the jump from the 6.0 forum. After along battle with my 06 F350 Lariat I finally laid her to rest. What a piece of [email protected]$. I am a ford fan all the way and I hope this forum is as fun and respectful as the other. Yes the picture in my Avatar is my truck the second day I had it.

Quick question does the turbo always stay above 20PSI?

I just made the swap as well. Best move that I ever made...so far. My boost almost always stayed above 20 psi. I loaded the SCT tow tune in my truck the other day (500 miles on her) and boost in the same situations stays between 10-15 psi but with more power.

I am pretty sure that guy is not supposed to be staying at 20 PSI. Mine runs at 10 PSI unless I am pulling a up a hill of what not. It has to be hurting your fuel milage, (not that it is not already pretty bad with these rigs).
You might want to get that checked out.

QU1CKSH1P - Is that while loaded? I would imagine, that trailer, and it's contents are pretty heavy/wind resistant.
