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!

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

I saw your video on YouTube for this, I just recognized your name lol. That suck that happened, but I rarely here of anyone going past 27 psi on a stock engine. I believe stock the evo runs 20 psi, so going up 50% of that to 30psi is quite a jump! But to answer your question I am runnning 25 psi.

If I hit over 30psi the AYC Service Required/AYC Disabled panel comes on.
My block is sleeved with cams and ARP hardware.
Is 30psi still the limit or is there a way to go a little over w/o tripping the AYC code?

I'd find a tuner that knows what they are doing, that is an EASY fix.
