Max PSI in the mid-range would be around 19psi. I would lower it for a DD setup. It tapers to redline at around 14-15 PSI i believe, as long as you are FBO.

There isnt a end-all-be-all specific PSI. It changes throughout the rev-band. You also have to consider the transmission and power/torque levels. An AT might run less boost in the mid-range to spare its transmission, while a 6MT goes balls to the wall.

Turbos dont have max psi. They have a psi where they loose effiecency in making power. That is the ceiling.

Very true, I was more of stating the safe-ish operating PSIs that i would recommend. Im sure our turbos could make mid-20s PSI, but it wouldnt be for a long time nor safe.
