Question Turbocharger Question

Just asking some of the "professionals" out there.... how much psi do you think an 04' v6 with a 9.5 compression ratio could safely run through a turbocharger? ( flat-top Pistons)

04 what?

with most N/A cars 5-8psi seems to be the safe boost on a small turbo. but every car differs so just saying that your car is an 04 with a v6 engine doesn't really say much.

Atmospheric pressure, unless the engine has been designed and manufactured to run boost.
