Default Max safe EJ20 Boost

First off I have a 95 RHD WRX, Its a GC8C, I just put in a electronic boost controller and I'm trying to set my boost levels one for daily driving and one for some track duty or light to light work as of now I have it set at .80 BAR or 11.6 PSI on LOW setting and 1.00 BAR or 14.5 PSI on HIGH setting. My mods are a cat back exhaust I belive its a 3 inch, a Fuel Cut Defender, and an air box delete kit. So is this to much boost already and if not what would you all consider the high end of safe. Thanks for your time and help.

Try it at 17 and see what you get. Assuming you're in Japan now, run it on the highest grade fuel you can get your mitts on and try 17psi. It SHOULD be okay.*


*The above post I just pulled out of my arse and should not be taken seriously.

if you have stock injectors and ECU, i wouldnt even try anything over 1.0 Bar.

if you have it tuned and have supporting mods i would run as high as 1.2 Bar.

i have my EJ20G set to 1.15 Bar and if conditions are right it may peak at 1.2 Bar.

Cool. I'll keep an eye out for you, so if you see a 98 white STi coupe with goldies waving don't be shy.

You planning on taking your wrx back home with you? I'm doing a bit of research on what I need to do in order to bring mine back.
