Even 14 psi is respectable and gives a good boost in power. 19 psi is f*ckin nuts to me. Can the engine take that? I was made to believe that runnin up that high on boost is insane and prone to blowin your engine. Am I wrong? I just ask because my friend had (had as in the dumb*ass totalled it) a 99 Mistubishi Eclipse GS-T that was a f*ckin beast....in fact we called it the beast. It was all black and ran 20 psi when he raced it. I don't even know half the shit that he had done to it but I know he had full exhaust an intercooler the size of an aircraft carrier and he took a lot of shit out of the back to lessen the weight (backseat, soundinsulation, etc I know because I rode in it the one time in the back just sittin on a mat on the floor right above the exhaust while he was doin 140mph on the freeway). It looked real nice on the stock 17 in. wheels. To give ya an idea about how fast it was......one of his kills was an Evo VIII....by two car lengths. If only he hadn't destroyed it......oh well. Peace.
PS: as of 7:36pm tonite I am 19
