add a chip and you'll get more boost.

Hey Wayne, I'm running a Hypertech programmer on setting #3. Mine is topping out right around 25-26 lbs of boost. That is in 5th gear at 90 mph.
While running through the gears it'll top out at 22 lbs of boost. Don't know if this'll help. Also WELCOME to the garage. Lets see some pictures of your truck.

Thanks tjl... I will post some pics when i get the chance. My peak level is 21 lbs., and the chip is 85 hp with high boost wheel. So im thinking i should be seeing around 26-28 lbs... maybe more.

Thanks again

I think you should see a lot more than 21 psi. My programmer is only 80 hp, I think. Good luck.

Called the techline today, i should see 20-22lbs. of boost, according to them.
So i seem to be in the right ballpark.

Thanks for the input S.S.B.B.
more is always good, i may go for a reflash too.

ok, just a clarifacation for all banks owners. i pulled my chip last week to get re-flashed( my guy couldn't do it, but i can send it back to banks for "free" so he says) so at any rate i've been driving around the last weeek w/o the chip and to tell the truth there isn't much difference between stock, and chipped with the rest of the stinger plus accessories. i still pull 22 psi and she still accelerates almost as fast. i may be ditching the ottomind altogether and get a dp 6pos. switch.
my banks guy seems to think that i will blow my truck up if i have anything programmed higher than the powerpack chip.
is this bulls*it or what, i'm getting sick of being burned by imports!
any advice would be greatly appreciated.
thanks,
-Chris-

Thanks CSIPSD. Ok i must of did something wrong ......doesn't move much going down the hiway at 70. It can get it up to around 8 psi when i step on it. Is it supposed to stay at a steady 8- 10 psi when cruising down the hiway empty ? At 70 it barely kicks up to 3 psi every now and then.

why not just disable the wastegate? I've heard of guys doing that but I don't know what kind of numbers they are seeing. Plus it's free so if i had one i'd give it a shot.
