Question Is a 1 bar boost spring asking for trouble?

I noticed in my receipts that there is a 1 bar spring in my tial wastegate. My CIS is totally stock and the car seems to run great overall. I usually only jump into the turbo power for short bursts, either 1st or 2nd gear ....maybe for 5 seconds at a time total in 2nd. I am really not wanting to melt any pistons.

The factory boost gauge reads a solid 1 bar at max boost. I haven't ever noticed any detonation. What do you guys think?

Factory stock other than k27 turbo, B&B headers, GHL exhaust, Tial F40, 1 bar wastegate, MSD 6A ignition, 8" and 9" Fuch upgrade, H4 Xenon headlamps and a 930S steering wheel.
