first search around (search button).
Then you would have to describe what you have!

some run up to 22psi, but it really hurts the turbo life


on a side note, with meth injection people run 26psi without problems

onefastsupra, do you run higher octane gas? That sounds like too much boost for Texas weather. Your turbos may be able to handle it, but it's likely that timing is pulled after only one full run.

18psi on pump gas and even then its good to be cautious (check your egt's and a/f's with a wideband). People run more on race gas (100+ unleaded), but you are slowly entering the inefficiency range of the stockers. I would aim for 18psi with a good tune and wastegate spring mod and you will see not only reliability with the stock twins but a mad power curve for stock turbos. After that its time to go single...
