5-7 PSI is normal for stock boost on an LPT.

Your fine. You don't need to down grade.

I have an LPT and I have a 25 In Hg / 25 PSI gauge. But I have an ECU upgrade so I am pushing 15PSI right now.

Yes and that is the highest you want to push on an LPT period.

so would it be poss to wind a stock turbo open to say 10-11 psi? with no other mods? and safely?
if not can i put a normal t5 turbo on my engine with no reliability issues? and what pressure would a stock t5 turbo give?

Default RE: boost pressure

1. You can run 15 PSI on your OEM turbo with no problems. Now if that turbo is going bad or is already in bad shape then yes there can be problems. 10-12 PSI is a good boost in pressure and a nice noticable difference from 5-7 PSI. And it is safe if you go with an ECU upgrade.

2. You can put a T5 turbo on your car. But it isn't going to boot anymore pressure then what yours is now. Because your ECU is controlling the boost pressure. But a T5 turbo can handle more pressure better then your LPT turbo can.
