Whatever you decide, wait until the engine is completely warmed up before you romp on it. In my mind the biggest issue is the boost if you are not studded.

27? Thats it ive seen 36 on stock turbo.
I believe that is the limit for stock turbo.

Anyways I run mine qt the track allmost every weekend in the summer. Also when I had to get to the hospital I was pegged out for prolly 5mins straight. All I had then was:
Studs, delete, tuned, lifted, bigbtires.
Still running strong

Don't romp on it and you will have turbo underboost codes. Romp on it to much and it will have overboost codes lol.

Anything over 32 on a stock turbo is inefficient.

I run mine WOT daily. Only issue is how strong the trans is... LOL

I'll do 3/4 or so throttle sometimes getting on the highway to cycle the VGT parts through the full range and reduce throttle once the VGT does its thing. I rarely ever go WOT, I don't usually have a reason to. It's a 9,000lbs brick, the opposite of a sports car (although it does sound good). I don't know about the limits, but everyone says EGT is important to pay attention to if you want to keep it mashed for a long period of time.

Ill keep my foot in it till either I hit 100 (dont trust my driveshaft LOL) or my EGT's get over 2K. The limits all depend on other factors, tune, injectors, etc...
U told me 36??

Yes, I told you that before Jesse and I did some testing on mine.

You can run 1,250 EGT's all day if you need to. 1,400 for less then 5 mins. And 1,800 for less then 5 seconds or so.

Watch your VGT duty cycle if you can. See if you can get it to 10%
