Beyond that you're getting into diminishing returns price-for-power, much like our cars beyond a downpipe/protune.
400whp is a bit much on the stock turbo. Lots of people out there running 300+whp/350+wtq on stock turbo with the standard bolt-ons (intake, turboback, fuel pump, IC, and a tune). I can't speak for longevity since they've not been doing it that long. There's a couple running around with 500whp with a GTX3071 and internals.
