hawkeye sti safe boost level????

hi all,this question has probably been asked before-ive got a 06 sti with a mongoose exhaust,uprated fuel pump with fuel pressure regulator and no idea of its past mapping if any at all.ive just fitted an apexi boost gauge and max boost is reading 1.1 bar,is this safe,its just that ive read soooo much about chocolate pistons on this model,i just need to know that 1.1 bar is a safe level,because the car seems to be running fantastic and is certainly quick enough for me
