is it safe for my car to take the vacuum line off that goes from the wastegate actuator to the map sensor so the car will boost higher then 7psi, but then ocasionally hit the overboost at 14psi when i slam on the pedel.

you really dont want to hit overboost more than necessary, its basically like shutting the car off, and you can imagine thats not good for it while you are moving and at presumably 3k or 4k rpm....its pretty much bad for everything. just buy a 25 dollar g-valve and set the boost where you like, up to the 14.7 psi cutout of course.....simpler and safer.
