    Mine is all stock other than turning the pump up. I'm getting 25 psi boost at WOT.

    Stock boost is probably somewhere around 15-18. The only way to increase boost is to increase fuel delivery aka turning up the pump. These trucks don't have a wastegate so fuel flow is the only method.

    Thanks for that info, I was wondering how to turn up the boost. I can't wait to get my EGT and Boost gauges in on wed, too bad it'll have to wait until the weekend to install them though.

    I ordered mine from TMG, bit pricey but not any different than any other kit price, I just wanted the digital look instead of the analog.

    Up to you to decide the look and functionality you want. Digital is clear and does not bounce, but with analog you get a better feel of the change rate (how fast it is increasing). Easier to put a warning buzzer on a digital one if you don't think you will watch it closely after turning your injection pump up.
