Post Q's about turbo boost and engine wear

I believe that when the new impreza comes out I will be able to afford it, but with the way gas prices are that might hurt me. So my question is will running the boost below factory specs, will that increase my mpg and also will it cause less wear on the engine/turbo? I plan on getting a turbo timer and boost controller when I buy my impreza.

Don't be silly... The engine is going to tuned from the factory with durability and economy in mind, much more conservative in these regards than a typical enthusiast would be. If those are your biggest worries, then I would say that it's wise practice to not monkey around with the factory settings. If you want good gas mileage and an engine that lasts 200k miles, then just drive it soft and keep up on your regular maintanence.

what I was wondering if under lower boost would fuel comsuption decreasde. The engine wear was just due to the first question. It was just a question and not really a worry I just thought of it since I had to go fill up my truck and was thinking of how high the gas prices are.
