Default Maximum Boost??

What is the maximum boost that a stock 1.6 can handle? Just want to keep everything in one large piece. Will build a correct engine this winter.

It would be comfortable running SOMEOFIT

if you're a man, you will run ALLOFIT

Don't listen to everyone above. You cannot run ALLOFIT on a stock engine. You can in fact run MOSTOFIT. You could also consider running ALMOSTSLLOFIT.
