Default hx35 concerns

i have what i beleive to be the stock turbo on my truck, which would be an hx35...but it could have been made into a hybrid by the previous owner as they did ALL the other power upgrades.

anyway with the stock intake and filter with a banks big head...the truck was making peak 32psi and dropping off to 29 on a long WOT pull.

last week i installed a AFE stage I intake and now it will peak at 37psi...then hold steady at 32 on a long WOT pull.

my exhuast temperatures at full throttle running as fast as this truck can go only reach 1200 degrees. would this lead anyone here to think that something is not so stock about my turbo, the only thing it has is the banks big head wastegate that i know of...could the housing or compressor have been changed?

also, is this too much boost for this turbo (37psi)...ive been trying to find a way to get more boost out of it so it will handle the chip and injectors which go in next

Doing what it was designed to do ,the aftermarket frees up a little air so you will see higher boost press. Not sure on your housing would have to look at it. [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif[/img]

I was told that the stock hx35 will handle 35psi of boost with no problem. I don't know about going higher.
