Only after pushing the boost over the 10 psi threshold.

There's a developed kit out there that used to be available that would give you a 7-10 psi boost. Can't get anyone to respond to the emails which suck, but you can do a search to find the website and use the same parts they have listed.

yea if i remember it was around 9ish psi where head bolts started to stretch and you would get gasses in the water jackets and start to spew coolant.

at sea level, yes. at 4500 feet +, 10 psi or so. I think the general formula is 1 psi for every 2k feet? Or something like that

I would love to get some turbonium, but I would go 5 psi to be on the safe side.
