safe levels of boost for a d 66

What kind of psi should I be looking to stay under for reliable service out of a turbo ? This truck is my work truck so I need to keep it on a semi reliable level , but , I do want to have a little fun with it also .

I think the most bean recomends is 40psi, but I would try not to go over 35 on a regular basis if you want it to last a long time.
