Right and since 11psi is well within the stock ECU's capabilities to alter timing and mixture how can it be unsafe? I've also read somewhere on this forum that the stock car raises boost to as high as 11psi at altitude to compensate for lower air density? Just asking for clarification because I want to make sure the stock ECU is up to the task to run the engine safely if a TT is added to the mix.
