That is the 0.7bar (psi) specified in the service manual.

Second, running with the wastegate closed is extremely bad. Its there for a reason, that turbo is not designed to operate without a wastegate, you're severely overspeeding the turbo and putting your engine at high risk of damage when it will fail.

Probable, judging from the compressor map I am slightly above or at the maximum speed of the compressor wheel marked on said map. Planning on installing a boost controller later to bring it to heel at 15psi or 17psi before I install a HE221W+intercooler setup.
