If you are running stage 2 aren't you close to this power level already?
For what it's worth I took 5 minutes to browse the forums and found a few examples of 300+ tq at that wheels and anecdotes of engine failure. Seemed like the failures were from hydrolock from running a meth kit though, not from more boost/power
EDIT: wow.. our forum blocks the URL name of competitor forum!!!
ahhh.. I see your point on the S55....
Stage 2 max torque is around 318lbft, close - but not quite at the 331lbft level that the original article stated.
BTW, I was surprised by the URL block on the other forum also.
