Subject: 9000...how far can I push the boost?


I'm on my 2nd 9000 turbo, it has 207,000 miles on it...lovely, black, great interior, aero rims-$2450!. Taking into consideration: new water pump, new alternator, new timing chain, new DI cassette, rebuit auto tranny, good sensors, blah blah blah. Does anyone think I would be stupid for tweaking to get more boost for an occasional rush. i.e. wastegate linkage, computer adjustment, and maybe even putting in a manual adjust boost valve? I mean, this is my daily car and I don't look to blow it up, but I tried disarming the wastegate as a test and there is a monster waiting for me.....any comments???? -Warren.
