you can run an aftermarket boost controller and give it more boost, you dont necessarily need to flash tune it (although a custom tune is ideal, and recomended)

i had my car running 14 psi through a greddy electonic boost controller, had it checked on the dyno and it was running safe....

so yes, there is another way of doing it...
