GE is 9.2:1, and true it isnt made for boosting, but it can be and has been done. running high boost on a GE is not recommended, as detonation will insue, as well as the cast pistons turning to glass. the stock GTE pistons were high silica content pistons, so they dealt with the higher heat and abuse better.

15 psi is only really gonna be achieved well with a standalone or FCD (fuel cut defender) and the latter is not recommended. the KVAFM and stock fuel system have a hard time properly metering fuel when you reach higher boost levels.
