Question manual boost controller

I have a 2002 WRX and I was thinking about getting a manual boost controller. I have a cat-back exhaust system and I was wondering how much boost my stock turbo can hold. Everything else on my car is pretty much stock. I am worried about detonating my engine or destroying my turbo. If you guys could help me out I would appreciate it.
thanks,
Josh

You can run 15psi on the stock ECU w/o any problems. The only issue with an MBC is PTFB. If you either watch your boost gauge very carefull and never allow it to go above 7psi while at part throttle, or get my SmartBooster, you can safely run an MBC.

Thanks
