Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hello! I have one question. Is it possible to export a map with street level with a larger size than that which is allowed by the "export" tab (Mapnik, Format;Postscript)? Thanks...

No, it is not possible to export a larger map as this would consume too much CPU on our servers.

You can either download the data you are interested in and then render it yourself (there are numerous answers on this system about rendering your own maps). That way you are only bound by the restrictions posed by your own hardware.

Or you can use an existing service that generates the map for you; the free MapOSMatic is an obvious choice but there alternatives both commercial and non-commercial.
