    I would say somewhere between 9-10 psi @ 8100 RPM

    Speeds prob somewhere around the 73-74 mark.

    idle is under vacuum so it isnt going to show anything.

    10 is allot between 8 and 9 would be the norm depending on the intercooler and piping set up.

    He is running a green wheel and they are rated at 10 psi.

    7.5 - 8 psi is stock.

    If your running below 9 i would be looking for a leak.

    Its all dependent on the boost gauge as well.

    I have a gauge that reads 12.5 out of a X charger at 8150, I dont think so!!!! I use it more to be sure my boost is consistant and that im seeing the same numbers when Im out riding, if it drops then I know I have issues. R88

    R88, my boost gauge also reads from 12 to 12.5 on an X Charger at 8140...

    Does the X stock boat boost 11 lbs stock?
    If so, taking off some restrictions like the flame arrester and relocating the intercooler, shouldn't you gain about a pound of boost more?

    Yeh quite possibly, I have never really been worried about the exact number tho just that it stays the same, the charger went in brand new and I have monitored it from then to make sure it always makes the same boost on MY gauge. R88
