Yes, it electronic control. Im not worried about detonation. Im concerned about mechanical overload of the piston, either braking the ring lands off it or flexing the pin and distorting the piston. These stresses are highest at peak torque. It has been surviving at 150ftlb, so i just wanted to maintain that torque(average cyl pressure) higher into the rev range. If i ran 22 Psi everywhere, the cyl pressure could be too high for the pistons.
If i havent sold it, and the next engine is ready, I might run the boost higher till it fails to see how much more headway there is. The risk is I could destroy the turbo in the process.
