Yes, most will agree that a stock turbo shouldn't be ran over 25psi max.
Many will suggest staying below 22 to be safe.
I've set mine up to max out right around 20psi WOT.
I'm guessing this is just slightly higher than the stock wastegate was, but more importantly it's holding shut longer and is more predictable...opens smoothly.

Guys, thanks to everyone with helping me mod my truck. I finally got everything in on it and couldn't be happier with the results. Now, I will focus my time on negotiating my way back into my house with my wife. If only I had the money I had to spend on her diamond apology ring to spend on my truck. Could easily have gotten over 500hp! I posted a couple of pictures on here with the results, again without all of your help I would have had no idea what to do. Happy and safe holidays to all of you and your families!
