Stock turbo n edge cts?

So I just got my edge cts. It's showing my turbo pushing 22 psi. How much more psi can I run on it safely? I bought the truck with all the mods but the edge cts. So I'm woundering if there any good tuner around mn I could take my truck to get tuned. It's got efi in I would like to be able to switch tune N lastly how close is the cts on boost?

It's reading off the stock boost sensor. That's about right. Go with Idaho rob for tunes. You won't be sorry.

CTS will only read 22 pounds of boost max on lb7 and LLY.

They have an add on that fixes it. I like my edge cs plus I am rarely over 22 psi anyways.
Plus once you get Efi live you can use it to change tunes.

I hit 22psi right away lol. Is it a download or a part I have to buy? I already have efi live. But I wanna just get it tuned on a dyno by a very respect shop for peace n mind. Since I don't know who the owner before me had tuned it.

It is the truck that can't read the boost over 22 psi.

I got the Edge sensor that will read up to 100psi of boost. I rarely see over 26psi on mine even with tuneing and boost fooler in place. I bought it for future turbo upgrades. So far I am extremly happy with my setup. Plus being a LB7 I can change my tune thru it.

Also keep in mind it does read those but thru the ECM. If you get the add-on EGT probe and Pressure assemby it will just be a little more accurate. But if you are just wanting an idea of what your numbers are it will still do everything you want it to.
