boost ?

hey evryone i had a quick ?

right now im running 10PSI and under full thotle my wideband says about 11 to a mid 11
now the question if i would put a manual boost controler on and turn the boost a up a few pounds, would that be safe???
i know it will lean it out but im not sure how much it will lean out?
also if it is safe how many pounds should i go up to without braking anything

not looking to retune right now, since i got a whole new setup in the works and the car is going of the road soon so i dont want to waste money

I know Tom and the other guys are gonna jump in here and say it. Most of the foci on here run mid 10.5 for their WOT. I wouldnt bump it up anymore. Just me personally though.

As for boost i would not go any higher than 11-12 psi. That is about all the stock internals are gonna handle. IIRC

There have been others that have made over 300 on stock zetec motors BUT they dont live long.

I wouldnt go any higher for now, 11.3 or so is where I like to run at the AFR's highest (usually lower) but if your already there then I wouldnt tempt fate.
