On a good shape motor, you'll be fine. I did 14 all day long on my old motor/stock turbo, and now I'm up to 16 on the JDM motor with 46T upgrade.

I did 17 psi just fine for years up in North Dakota because of the mild weather and cold winters (great for intercooling!).

Higher boost will only shorten the lifespan on already worn and dying equipment.

Edit: I'm at 15 psi here in Vegas and will probably drop a few psi for summer again.
