Hit 33 psi Today. Problem?

So this morning I was on my way to work and got stuck behind 3 cars and bike. No problem, got boost. On a straight and with a clear road ahead I hit the pedal to pass. Felt pretty quick so I glanced at my V3 Accessport and saw that I hit 33 psi of boost at 98% throttle. It was about a 35 mph punch.
Problem is, my tune is supposed to be at 28 psi. Can this damage the turbo or worse, the engine?
Things to note: I was custom tuned by COBB with a 400s kit, FP Green, yada yada yada. My tune was done on a hot day. Cooler weather now = higher boost right? I'll admit I got ahead of myself and did the big upgrades before I learned what I was actually doing and Im still in the learning process. Please be constructive if Im dumb.

Over boosting is a definite problem. I would be on the phone with Cobb. I was there the other day setting up an appointment for a dyno tune. What parts do you live?

Well its only in the 50-60 degree temp here. I called last year when it went to 29 psi and they said no big deal. Today was the first time in a while I really smashed on the gas and couldnt believe what I saw. I bug them a lot and wanted to see other peoples opinion before I called again. Parts list better explained through my dyno video.

Stock internals, yes. No question about it.. The phenomenon called premature failure.

Sounds to me that you have spent mucho $$$ there. So why would you worry about bothering them? You are their customer.
