i placed a boost gauge in my car and i have some questions,

i recently placed a boost gauge on my car, i cut the line that goes through the manafold, the poopy one with the clogged banjo bolt one (haha you know what i mean from cleaning the dang thing ) and cut the line around half way and got a rubber fitting and reconnected them and then had the other line to the boost gauge. now my car is a 85 300d and i got 10-11 boost, is there a way i can get more, and is my mod safe cause im so paranoid if my car encounters to be a runaway... i pray and hope it wont.

10-11 psi is stock. An aftermarket boost controller will get you more but it won't do any good or so I have read here. 13 psi is about as much as the engine can stand. Others can give you a better explanation.

13psi isn't as much as it can stand, its all that it can use without modifying the fuel injection limit.
