Default Follow-up to Dyno Results

Hey guys, I posted my dyno results on here last week after my cai, inlet, dp and protune I netted an extra 50hp at the wheels. I'm considering next steps with a TMIC, full exhaust, injectors, fuel pump and another tune. I have two questions though:

This would be expensive so I'd want to know its worthwhile before hand, how much further do you think I can push the stock turbo? I already got an extra 50hp, I'm guessing it might have another 30hp in it?

Would I be seriously increasing the probability of drive-line problems down the road? This is my DD, never raced but I do like some spirited driving as I'm on the road a lot and love pushing my car.

As always, the collective wisdom of Nasioc vets is always appreciated

I would call Pat and ask him, he's going to give you the best honest truth.
After all, that's your shop isn't it?

I think with the vf52 it'll be worth it.. It might not be the greatest increase in power but it'll make your powerband much nicer.. and that's not even fully true.. you may get much more power out of it then you think.. Also, I don't think it'll endanger your driveline.. just make sure you get a good tuner

He has a great tuner that is well known for tuning safe and reliable.
Throw on some injectors, a FP and a set of EL's and you will be happy with your fat powerband. That is a great combo with the 5spd....

Yeah I'm fortunate enough to have access to Rocket Rally, Pat and his guys do a top notch job. I'm not going to do this work till after the summer though so I don't want to call and bug him just yet. Once I'm a little closer to scheduling a time I'll give him a shout.

Still a little concerned about pushing too much power through the stock tranny though...
