2002 WRX Wagon

Default Question about capabilities of EJ205

I bought a 2002 WRX Wagon, with a couple of bells and whistles on it. Got a great deal but need to know the engines mechanical limits.

It has upgraded parts, such as a slightly bigger turbo and TMIC. As well as the Cobb Accessport, with professionally done tunes.

I'm just curious as to the ej205s capabilities for boost. The tunes are as follows: 14psi, 16psi, and 17psi. If I were to guess, the tunes and mods were done ~50k mi ago. I'm wondering how safe they would still be under regular maintenance and fairly normal driving. (The car currently sits at 86k mi) I want to know if I should get entire new tunes done at a local reputable shop.

I'm not sure what other information you require, but here is the parts list for the current build. Please let me know if i'm being an idiot and leaving something out. Thank you so much for all the help!

(Stock suspension and body)
TD05 16g turbo
Cobb turbo heat shield
Perrin inlet tube
Grimmspeed TMIC
Grimmspeed 3 port boost controller
Grimmspeed up pipe with turbosmart 44mm wastegate
ID1000 1000cc injectors
DW200 fuel pump
3 inch turbo back exhaust (With at least Stromung dual tip muffler)
Koyorad Aluminum radiator
Cobb access port
