Default Stage 1 boost levels

Now that some of you have had time to put some miles on your GT's w/stage 1, what are your boost levels holding at? Just curious[8]

ok, I guess I should 'splain myself. Since I got my car back from the burnt valves fiasco, the boost has been spiking to 17/18psi dropping back to 10/11psi. It used to spike at 14/15 then settle back to 10/11. It runs fine other wise. Hahn Turbo Guru Bob Stockum highly suggested a EGT install, which happens to be on my Xmas list anywaz. He said that they have fixed the "results" of a bad tensioner, but may not have fixed the reason it went bad(to lean). So it's possible it could happen again[xx(] So that's why I posted this ?
Thanks

I get a spike to 12 and then back down to 10/11. I am having an EGT installed Monday.

I WOT at 12-13psi.
EGT runs (post turbo) around 1200 but quickly settles with lower boost pressures. I assume then I am seeing prolly 1400 degrees at the turbo.
Don't think that's too lean...and it runs fine.
