    turbo is not the biggest thing for me I can Upgrade if need it, its more about the engine it self that Im thinking whats the Max safe HP it can handle (awcores I understand it will still shorten engine life by lit )

    Hang a Borg on the side and give her the beans. I wouldn't be scared to turn it up to 700 horse, I'm about ready to try it on my 6TS.

    It can handle 700hp no problem. But here is something to think about. Hp increase decreases the life of the motor. The engine was built for 550, I would leave it where it is
