Boost Question

If you get a boost controller for your turbo can you boost it more? I typically see about 24 psi on a good day. And if you can change the boost how much?

You should not push more then 30psi of boost on a stock turbo that is what I have been told.

When you say boost controller what exactly are you talking about.

AEM - TRU-BOOST Gauge-Type Controller


It can adjust the boost levels with a change in the dial
