How much boost is everyone hitting on stock turbo?

I was wondering what everyone is hitting and what I should be running. If I remember correctly my Excursion would hit 25-27lbs with DP tuner and tymar. My current truck will not go past 20lbs. Was wondering is it because of the Banks wastegate? Should I adjust it?

2002 F-350 CC LB Silver 10 inch lift on 38x13.50x20 Toyo MT's, Banks stinger kit, 4" exhaust, Intake, Big head waste gate, DP live tuned 12 pos chip, Transgo Shift kit, 6.0 trans cooler, 4 pod gauges. All work done at WOP

On a stock wastegate I will hit about 29-30 psi. I would adjust it.

mine will go 30-32 with the "boost tube" on it, which is basically disconnecting the wastegate. Otherwise, 25psi

I can get to 27 psi. Which seems low for what I'm running, I would think I should be higher.

Mine is hitting 28psi and I am unhappy. Because over 25 is pissing in the wind. I have to adjust my wastegate.

27-28 PSI here but I just blew it up last week too!
