    It would be very reliable since you built the bottom end if it is setup correctly as far as tuning. You have 9:1 compression which is ideal for boost. You wont have much all motor power with that kind of setup.

    Yeah i'd say your safe. As long as you get a decent tune on there, and dont run crazy amounts of boost on that trip, you will be fine.
