N52s aluminum/magnesium block is not suitable for the hp of turbocharging
Except you cant prove this since no one has really tried? Heck shitty 1.8 4cyl mitsu engines can hit 300hp

Sure the n52 wont handle stupid power like 600+hp etc but 300-350 stw on 6-7lb of boost i dont find physically unreasonable?
