Boost Levels

I have an 02 powerstroke with banks quick turbo assembly and other add ons. I am only showing that I am getting 18psi of boost. Why am I not making more boost? I show 18psi of boost both on gauge that is hooked through the boost fooler and through the OBD port on Torque pro app. I do not hear any leaks on intercooler boots. What are some things that might cause lower boost levels?

Re: Boost Levels

Check your ebpv - it could be stuck closed or partially closed and limiting exhaust output and thus low boost. I only produce 20lbs anyways. Iím happy with that.

Re: Boost Levels

is your wastegate still have the line on it? if so disconnect it and plug. i put mine on the t bolt clamp. stock inj's cannot over boost it. what rpm are you hitting 18 psi? also what diseldc said.

Re: Boost Levels

i also took my waste gate controller off and tightened it up 1/4" so it wouldnt open. it was fluttering at 19 psi on mine with the line unhooked. wasnt turbo surge as mine was an e99. its now a sxe366 with no wg.
