What is a safe boost level to run at in an 86 Turbo with mostly stock internals?

I know if you crank it up you run too lean..etc...etc..

Do not quote me but I think 10 lbs. of boost seem to be the norm on this forum. My neighbor has an 88turbo running 17lbs with an intercooler and 3inch exhaust-no cat and HKS muffler. It's a sweet and really quick ride.

Yea the one i'm talking about is slightly bored, with thicker head gasket and your standard cone intake.

and the T25s found on the 88/89 models blow heat after about 12psi if not lower.

how much boost? boost it til it pings. then back off 1 to 2 psi.
