    unless you're going to a standalone management system, 10.6 psi is your map sensor's limitations, and thus, your turbo system's limitations

    nearly all turbos on the market will push 15 psi.

    non-wastegate = you're going to blow up.
    internal = wastegate is on the turbo
    external = wastegate is on the manifold

    dry = dry
    liquid cooled = has water passages to tie into your coolant system

    reliability = fuel management and tuning
