How much can you run? It depends what mods you have done. With just an upgraded ECU, I think you can go up to 19 or 20psi. Beyong that, you will need some...beefing up!<BR> <IMG SRC="http://www.plauder-smilies.de/rough/tank.gif"> <P>Yannis<BR><P>

You need the downpipe to run higher boost is a comfertable way.<BR>After mounting the downpipe the turbo peaks in a bad way over 1.5 bar which can result in ECU error, with the S60 that is.<BR>You have to find a way to compensate the peak pressure.<BR>Up to 1.3 bar isn't a problem, above that the boost gets a little turbulent with the standard turbo.<P>1.3 bar = ~19psi

It's not worth your effort...do it the normal way first. You will see more gain...then when you really have the $$$ and can afford to experiement..then play w/ the AFC.<P>Your ECU upgrade alone should be plenty.<P>Like the other said...after the ECU, and the full exhaust (including the dp)...you should be more equip'd to run higher boost.<P>What is safe? Don't know...I think you should be able to run 19~20 like the other said. My cousin's 850 is running 20+ PSI...so..it's your call.<BR>
