    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
