How are you planning to increase boost? MBC and bypassing the factory BPC?

Do you have any certain goal for the car or just want more power out of it? I'm pretty sure that the stock ECU can handle a little more boost, but problem is you have quite a small turbo. Another 2-4psi won't hurt anything, but anything more is just going to be hot air with no real benefit. You'd be exceeding the turbo's limit...
