Default Turbos

Are there bugger turbos out there for ecoboost engines? The turbos on my truck are only boosting 15psi.

No need to spend thousands of dollars on bigger turbos when a $400 tuner with some custom tunes(not Bullydog) will do a better job. Bigger does not mean better!

Heh eh heh... he said boosting.

Ya YA !! boosting's cool



Hey Beavis................... There's MUCH MORE than the turbos leading to your measily 15 psi.

Wire your wastegates closed... or better yet pull the vacuum lines and you should get that 30 psi you desire... would probably pull 30K with all that new powa FTW !!!
