In fact, I've seen him say that using higher boost can result in less power in some cases ( I can't remember exactly why right now)...but if the tune for it is good, and the fuel is there I don't see why it wouldn't make more power.
For clarification, does the stock kit run 9 PSI?

Could you turn up the boost to 9 psi easily if not?
