Boost level is somewhat determined by knock/timing/fuel/etc. If using a stock turbo, a PW is major overkill. But, if it makes you feel better, its your money. You will most likely be able to (safely) tune to 18.5-19psi on stock fuel, stock turbo, PW. Might be able to eek 20psi for a quick second.
I gotta also try and locate the banjo bolts I got the repair manual so i can look it up. can they be cleaned or do they need replaced? if so do you have a part# for 08 leg GT 5eat Thanks msprank
