I'm surprised about all the variances here. I have heard 48 to be the magic number with 50 being stable. I am not going to go to rings, but will be doing studs with my turbo upgrade in the coming 2-months. I want to run a solid, consistent and reliable 48.

High boost isn't the only factor in blowing the head gasket, timing can cause much more problem.
Advanced timing causes higher cylinder pressures, excess boost just adds to it.
Don't know how the electronic timing works an a 24 valve or if the controller boxes you guys use alter timing but on a fixed timing engine like a 12 valve once you get over 19° it's time to think about studs and rings.
