    It wouldnt be the turbo id be worried about! It would be the internals of the engine as to much boost and not enough fuel isnt a good combi!!

    As for how much boost the standard turbo can handel, I supose it depends how long u want it to last. Im sure you could run it at 20psi with not many problems ? But Ill let the experts on here give you the correct figures instead of my uneducated ones

    you could go old school and wind up the actuator not recommending that as safe for the engine, far better to get a remap though the car will run more efficiently off boost and safely on boost. and these engine internals are fine to around 22psi repeatedly with correct ignition and fueling timings
