It's 18 PSI tapering to Mid 12's at redline, which is a little low on the top end but otherwise pretty normal for a car not on methanol.

Where it is low on boost it makes up for it with high ignition timing, which is about 15 degrees on average, 3-5 more on average then your typical pump gas car.

One could push a methanol car to about 15 PSI at red line if they wanted to but that's a story for a different day.
