Safe sustained boost numbers

What kind of boost numbers are safe for non-studded trucks? The last trip out with the toy-hauler using the 8K tow from Matt, my boost #s would spike to 29psi and stay around 20psi cruising. Is this normal or BAD? I emailed Matt and he just asked what the #s were stock, but didn't make a big deal about it. I don't know because I haven't towed stock yet. If I return to stock, can the SCT turn off the egr? Just need to be as safe as possible (I know tuned is not safe as possible) so my wife doesn't shoot me if I lift the heads.

I just got mine and have not towed with it yet. I have only run SRL and average 5-10psi cruising. I've been meaning to test out the tow tune. What kind of mileage do you see with it and how often do you run it?

28-29 is just fine. I am on original gaskets and headbolts with my 04 on 181,XXX+ miles.
