Default ??safe boost w/stage 1??

If I read you right, 12psi stock, and 12-14psi w/stage 1, I've read people running 16-18 psi w/ mods,(boost controlers) any problems with this much boost??Such as fuel cut or CEL??
And one other thing, are the ENGINES the same (long-block) PT & SRT4?? I obviously know the manifolds are different, but as in strength? Just curious.....Stew

The general concensus on the SRT4 site is you can not run more than 16 psi with stage 1 installed. Over 16 psi the computer will pull power out by reducing timing, etc.
There are a few people using Stage 1 for the street and then going back to the stock computer for track use with the addition of MBC's and other controllers to actually make MORE power than what can be had by running Stage 1.

P.S. I think the real answer will go along with stage 2 where you'll be able to "dial" in your boost settings. The rumor is you'll have four stages...one for basicly stock street use (probably similar to stage 1 levels) and then 3 more power stages above that with the 4th level requiring the use of 100 plus octane racing fuel.
