Keep the wastegate hose connected and run the 80 for most of everyday use and you shouldn't have an issue with the stock turbo.

I usually switch back and forth, but the economy tune is what I run 80% of the time.

Nah it wont hurt anything for drag strip use or something like that, everyday pounding it to 30 might eventually cause a problem. I only unplugged mine just for racing, but I usually keep it connected just because.

I think I read somewhere the stock turbo is useless passed 25ish anyway.

Over 30psi and it only pushing superheated air which makes no power.

it's a red line that goes to the wastegate, that's on the driverside of the turbo
