getting greedy with boost?

I currently run an 84 us spec 3.2 with a paxton supercharger. Bottom end (rings/rod bolts) was freshened up a few years back, and its got headers and 2 in 2 out sport muffler. Car puts out about 5lbs of boost, with a 3 3/4" pulley. Would it be safe to drop down slightly on the pulley to get 6 or 7 lbs? The car is very fast, as its in a 76 stripped out body, but you always want more. I guess what Im asking is how much boost is safe, before compromising reliability?
