Totally understand where your coning from! Juan Ruiz use to be a big boost kinda guy and drag raced his car often. He wasn't very happy with 623RWHP or so, so he decided to abandon Porsches altogether

If you wanna run big boost, I say go for it! Just don't expect much longevity from an air-ccooled motor running those sorts of boost pressures. Heat is the killer with such boost levels and that's why the ricer guys can get away with running such boost levels, cause of the watercooling and more efficient heads etc.

Will you be running with Nerosist rings, bigger oil pump, larger splash valves, cermamic coated pistons, aftermarket rods etc? If so, then the motor should handle occassional bursts to 30+ psi... but nothing sustained I'd think, IMO.
