Boost Question

I just installed my gauges and went out for a test beating and saw around 30PSI typically although i did max out my 35PSI gauge a couple of times, I was just curious how much boost can a studded 6.0 "safely" handle???
Thanks
Bryan

Studded you should be able to have the clamping force for that high of boost. Once you peg the gauge though it's hard to know how much over 35 psi it went. Maybe it's time for a 0-60 psi turbo gauge. hahah
what tune are you running?
