Nobody would word it like that. I come from the Mitsubishi world where regularly we see fast Evos, Eclipses, VR-4s etc etc run +-40 psi.

You have to have very hevy duty head studs and a headgasket and NO KNOCK tune. Bottom end wouldn't necessarily need to be built but it wouldn't last trmendously long without it.

So as far as the pressure goes that doesnt really impress me, it doesn't mean much if the tune isnt spot on. I dont know how the tune would be spot on with that injection though.
