Ah, a fellow GSi Turbo owner :D

Well they run 8-11psi std, but can run around 12psi nicely on a boost controller, i've got mine set at 13, but my engine's showing no sign of wear/pinking etc. on standard boost and breathing, they're around 185bhp.

The Dump valve may not be loud if you've not blanked off the OE re-circ DV on the turbo. This is either done by a plate or by a bung that goes in the unit to keep the diaphragm shut.

de-cat pipe is probably best custom made, ideally a full 2.5" exhaust system will suit the car down to the ground :)
