I have a similar set up in my truck and I'm getting around 27-29 pounds of boost. Without my intercooler my egt's would go up pretty quick but not that bad. It only got bad if I was towing. With the intercooler egt's are no longer a problem.

With no IC you might get to 40 mph.

Not really... With stage 1's there is only so much fuel to be had... 38# is the highest boost reading I have ever heard of with stage 1's... I have Tonys Tunes as well, no higher boost with his then anyone elses...

That was a suttle banks jab. My stage II's have a tough time hitting above 35.

It really depends on what you are going to be doing with the truck. If you don't tow much if at all you'll be OK. The IC would still be good but you can get by without it. If you do much towing you are going to really need it though or you will be backing out of it constantly.

I think a lot of bigred's boost is comming from his nonwastegated 1.0 housing. Turbo isn't going to last long hitting that kind of boost at all though. I've got a friend with stage Is and an ATS wastegated housing and it works very well. Spools real nice and holds the boost exactly where he wants it to keep the turbo from overspooling.

used to be all it was used for was towing, but now it's my daily driver, may see 1000 miles a year towing but thats about it. so I'll see how my EGT's are before i decide if i need an IC. I know it would help majorly, but if i can get by without it that would be great
