I could run 45lbs of boost on my stock engine. At least I could make it show up on the gauge as 45lbs. Put a serious restriction in the intake tract and watch the boost climb on the gauge.
Boost is not a real number to compare horsepower with. Boost is all relative to restriction. As an old school hotrodder, I have serious hearburns with "That's a 9lb pulley", since on my car it could be 5lbs on the gauge, it all depends on the amount of restriction in the system. I also have issues with "Stage 2" cams, but that's another subject altogether.
