2007 6.0 Boost Problems. Please Help!

So I just bought an 07 F250 6.0 yesterday. It has a K & N intake on it and then today I installed an Edge Evolution CS and I noticed that the truck tops out at 20 psi of boost on both the CS screen and my trucks stock boost gauge. I've been reading that these trucks typically hit 27-28 psi at WOT. Any ideas as to what the issue is if any?

You mean make sure all the clamps are nice and tight and there are no leaks?

Look for fresh oil on the outside of the boots if you still have factory ccv

Pretty much. Sometimes the up pipes crack, though usually you can hear a sound similar to a jet engine when this is the case. Also, they may be loose on the manifolds or the connecter on the turbo may not be lined up right. As for the CAC boots, I found the best way to look for cracks in em is to take them off and bend/twist em. The crack will usually appear if there is one. And of course, making sure they are tight on the tubes is important.

Ok i will look through everything and see if I can find anything .... I did more testing with the tuner and at most the boost peaks at 25-26 psi but it usually sits around 20-22 psi

That's probably all your going to see it the truck is running a stock tune. IMO
