If this is your first motor, you have alot more things to worry about than how many pounds boost it has...Your time would be better spent on other areas of tuning the motor. Seems to me theres alot of people that get real caught up about boost numbers.
Pull the motor out, put it on a motor stand and pull the oil pan off. Someone earlier said you should get to know the rotating assembly and make sure nothing is awry or out of clearance, and thats a real good point IMO.
