i'm running a stock turbo on my 04 and was wondering how far i can push it before it'll give up the ghost. i have a boost elbow on it now and i'm running between 26-28 psi with a stock computer. i plan to put a diablo predator and stack it with something later. when do i need to change the turbo or will the head need to be studded first????

The stock 03-04 turbo is good for around 30-32 psi. Push it past 35psi will greatly reduce it's lifespan because of excessive heat being generated.

I wouldn't worry about the head studs until around 55-60psi and beyond.
