43.5 2.9 psi (S50 M3)
51 2.9 psi (S52 M3 (96 & up) )

93psi? holy crap!!!!!!!!! turn it down. You shouldn't have more than 60 or so. Typically on forced induction you use a boost reference to jump pressure and even then it's not typically over 65 psi. You're naturally aspirated so turn it wayyyyyyyyy down before you cause some serious injuries to your car.
