Turbo does need to be upgraded. It will will give you plenty of boost if you need it.

If you are throwing an overboost code...then set it back to stock power. What do you get then?

It could be that the high pressure turbo has an issue or your VGT is having an issue. It is not the banks.

If you have the IQ and check for codes and there are none...then how often are you regening?

Has your mpgs dropped quite a bit?

My high pressure turbo about a year ago was pushing out a little higher then I thought it should. I took it in and it was out of spec by 3.6 psi.

I had no codes either. Ford replaced it under warranty.
