No, but more boost will lead to a higher chances of knock before MBT is reached.

Any combo that can achieve xyz power level using a lower boost pressure is ALWAYS the safer and more reliable setup.

The only thing that often prevents using compressors large enough to achieve it, is spool. So it's always a compromise.
