Turbo boost

What kind of numbers are you guys pushing with your stock turbo? Does this increase when you unplug the wastegate? For some reason I can't seem to get above 19 psi with or without the wastegate unplugged. The problem is when I put my chip in which is a TS four position chip, I am running some really hot EGT's and I think this is due to the lack of boost. Even under the lowest setting of 50, I can still hit 1200+ easily even on flat land.

Also I have blown off the EBPV three times and have fixed and replaced the clip but what could this be caused by?

Thanks for your help, Jared

Re: Turbo boost

Check all your boots. Especially the 2 orange ones under the Y pipe. Sounds like you have a leak somewhere.
