Do I need to worry about a huge boost increase?

So after installing the 4 inch straight pipe on my truck with out the cold air intake the boost has already gone up to 30 PSI according to the dash gauge, If I put the intake on does anyone think it will increase anymore? I don’t want the boost going to high

Intake or exhaust has no effect on boost, sorry.

the muffler is a huge boost restriction. removing it will show a marked increase in boost.

That's crazy talk. Of course they effect boost, and airflow.

doesn't a stock 6.0 limit boost to around 28psi?

Well if they say intakes and exhaust doesn't effect boost and airflow then they're total morons and good riddance. And by intake, I don't mean filters, that's not an intake.
