In order to upgrade my boost psi right now i should probably upgrade my injectors right?
I put a boost controller in, but i didnt set it too high since i dont want to blow anything.

But i saw replacement turbos and wondered if it was possible.

Anything else i might want to upgrade or have to?
Once i put in my gauge ill be able to tell what i am actually boosting.

you may then fool your ECU the cars brain ,and end up with less power as your ECU controls your injectors .and you can blow your relay for your injectors.you should not need to change anything the way the car is the now.just give it a good service and fluid changes.

So what can my car handle then, the highest psi. Because my controller allows 0-20. and it came with a spring for up to 30 haha.
Which i would never do. But 20 might be nice, or atleast 15. Im not sure what i am at now though. Until my gauge is in.

first thing you need to know is ,do you have a high pressure turbo .or a low pressure turbo.so with a high pressure turbo you should be able to go up to 20 psi for your turbo bypass valve.but you will get more turbo lag that will slow you down but get more top end speed.

there should be a plate on the turbo telling you both the model and any details.
