Unhappy toooo much psi?

i just installed a custom boost controller and im running the car at about 19 psi, what is a safe yet still effective amount of psi to run the car at?

Ummmm YEAH DEFINATELY WAY TOO MUCH BOOST FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE! I'd say put it around 15 or 16 psi at MAX. Your engine won't be around long if you leave it at 19. Read Kobi's tuning guide under Newbie forum. Very helpful.

Yeah........ DEFINITELY WAY too much for a stock fuel system, not to mention the uppipe cat.

I wouldn't go more than 15 on a stock system like that, to tell you the truth.
