Safe boost levels?

What are people running for boost levels on a 100% stock turbo/long block? Car was recently tuned (by someone very popular here) and was pushing over 30psi. Motor got destroyed not long after.

Post up below what your seeing on the gauge!

Drives: a laptop connected to your ECU.

Way too much on stock motor/turbo, with any fuel.
