Whats your boost at????

Well just got finished installing my mbrp exhaust and i love it. I went with the turbo back off- road cool duals. Thats right no cat the muffler doesnt look like it holds anything back.

O.k so with my intake i noticed that when at wot my turbo would get up to 17-18 pounds of boost. And now after the exhaust was put on i am noticing on the sct that when at wot the boost gets up to 28-29.

Is this normal?

On a stock set up you should see 26-28psi at WOT, your turbo might need cleaning. Keep an eye on boost for a couple of weeks an see if it drops again. Also the IC boot coming off the turbo is known to rip. Sometimes the rip can be under the clamp, so it's best to remove and inspect.
