It's my understanding that running 14.6 lbs. of boost is equivalent to doubling your compression ratio. Your more than tripling it.

I do have a boost gauge and a egt gauge. I've never held 32 psi for longer than about 4 seconds. When I'm trail riding or in the mud in never sees above 20. Never need more than that. And yes it's broken many axles drive shafts diffs and the transmission. And I have the waste "deleted" I guess. I had to in order to get the housings right. I'm wanting to put a new turbo on it and set it for around 18psi. I ran it there for awhile before and it did well. My egts didn't really go up when I cut the delivery valves and got the extra boost.
