So would it be safe to say with full bushings there is the potential to get a little more out of the car

I like your enthusiasm!

Its hard to say for sure. Admittedly, G numbers are impossible to compare with out doing back to back testing under identical conditions. They are dependent upon a ton of variables. So I would not be able to say that you can expect more Gs with the addition of a handful of small parts.

But, with that said, provided an optimal alignment is included, it can't hurt!

I am very interested to get the feedback about how the car is from an in-cabin vibration perspective when totally outfitted with all your bushings as well as the front sphericals, solid sub frames and rear trailing arms.

Well, I would hope someone would see this and post up about it. My opinion may be slightly bias, since my expectation of a performance product has severe tradeoffs in NVH. My expectations are completely disregarded, as these upgrades still offer a totally streetable ride quality. So it is all going to be subjective and relative to the customers expectations.
