A turbo builds boost exponentially as the engine speed rises and boost doesn’t stop rising. Obviously too much boost would blow your engine, so something needs to be done. It is called a wastegate, and at a set boost level it basically opens up and allows exhaust gas to bypass the turbine, keeping boost within the cylinders at a set level. For the basic kit, boost is set at 6 psi.
