That would be nice to know.

That may be my eventual, last official mod on this car. I want to run about 14-15 psi max, but I want to do it that the blower isn't even breaking a sweat at those boost levels and want it to be able to hold up without heat soaking the hell out of itself on sustained hard driving. Not that I'll be driving hard for sustained periods of time, but I want OEM reliability and durability. I'm willing to pay 6 grand for that.
