Talking When does the PCM shut down the engine do to too much boost?

Ok I just couldn't leave well enough alone!! Tweaking the boost and HELLO the computer said THATS IT!! Then the ever loving CHECK ENGINE light followed(this happened at night so my wife and I could really enjoy the amber ambiance) but luckily I hooked up the scanner at work and got that nasty reminder on the dash to go away. By the way I think the code was a PO244. So back to the question. When is too much boost too much. I know one or more of you guys has to know this . Thanks for your input and comments.

Stock turbo... conservatively I would say 16 psi*

*Over that... The consensus seems to be that you will just be getting a bunch of hot air.

You should be adjusting the fuel mix if you are raising boost.

I believe 17psi and the computer cuts the fuel. It can spike higher than 17psi momentarily.
