Too much boost?

Does anyone think i have too much boost for a stock engine? I've got a 3.9" pulley on my D1SC. I was thinking maybe a 4.0" pulley and retune to 425rwhp. My tune is based off the 005 pull.

I don't think so. Around 450 RWHP is my goal (417 right now on 6psi), as all my research and comments from people who know much more about this than I do tell me it's safe, but about as far as you want to go on a stock motor.
I'd leave it alone and enjoy the power! Nice numbers!

My thoughts are the same as your's i am thinking of going to a 3.80 pulley on my P1SC to bring it down around 415-425 RWHP... I myself would feel better with 425 on a stock block... But then again N/A guys have blown them...
