Hurry up and install that 3.4" pulley and you will get it up from 7 to 10.

Probably more like from 7-12. I am suprised you are seeing 7psi boost. Stock boost is rated at 6psi, but usually is like 6.2-6.5psi. 7psi is actually a little high. Put on that 3.4, and you will be suprised.

Weather conditions can play with how much boost you get too.
