    the wastegate is the ONLY thing that regulates boost.

    a boost controller can only be used to UP the boost, and in doing so, it simply tricks the wastegate into making it stay closed longer

    if the car is your daily driver, i wouldnt go more than 8psi. If you dont really work the boost all that much(i.e., driving like a jackass, flooring it and spooling to 7k every single stoplight), I would think 10 would be okay. I def wouldnt run any more than that on stock internals.
