What is a safe pressure to run on a stock 5.0? besides zero

Is 10 Psi excessive?

If for some reason the boost jumped to like 12 or 13 what would break. The bottom end of the 5.0 is supposedly rock solid. Will a head get blow off before the piston or rod goes. Will the head gasket blow out first?

I would say that 8-10 psi is perfectly reasonable. I wouldn't go above 1 BAR though.
