you could run that turbo until you can buy a new one, definately drive it conservatively, but that setup at WOT should push 34-36 lbs plenty to pop that stocker

you are going to blow that stock turbo looong before you have to worry about head gaskets. Head Gaskets are good to about 42lbs. Stock turbo is gone after a few trips above 30 lbs.
