    The OP is asking of the 08's though. 11.9 seems a little low for the stock setting.

    A mates stock dyno run...

    He didn't claim any mods, just 2 pulls on a dyno...

    But I've also heard 11.5ish psi somewhere...

    I've got to go back to stock for a safety recall tomorrow, I can watch my boost gauge and get back to you with a definite number...

    12.8 is a little more like it.... STILL a little low, but the #'s don't lie....
