search, search and then after that more search. Its been discussed MANY times. Safe is a relative term and really depends on your tuning skill and what sort of tuning method. With a bad tune she'll blow at 1psi, with a good tune you can run upwards of 18 psi safely.

dmdicks, just for my reference, what does 18psi equate to roughly on the i4 in whp? I realized i didn't know that trivial fact that other day...

new tiburon should buy you a pager dmdicks. That way when a thread like this pops up you get a page, and you can answer it, because you dont cut the person down, you give them a good answer and a solution for how to research it. Good job

I would say with a spot on tune a 100% bonestock Beta2 could do 350whp, with just a good tune 300-320whp should be easy. The key is in the tuning device and tuner using said device.
