well I have an upcoming tuning appt. and I'm torn on what I should run for boost pressures. its built to handle 15 all day everyday. but I don't know if I should tune it for wastegate pressure (10psi) or just run the 15psi right off the bat. I really wanna run 15 and make the full power that I planned for, but I'm not sure if I'd be risking anything since this motor and turbo have never seen boost. OPINIONS PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Niice! Also you may want to hit up Erik123456789, he's also the man when it comes to high boost on F23 blocks. If it were me I'd do 12psi, but 15 should be fine if everything is built to handle it. Good luck bro, can't wait to see the results!
