So as others have said, good tune and plenty of fuel. and you can enjoy it for some time.
Sounds good thanks

I would think 600-650rwhp is a sweet spot if done right. Any higher can be made but Depending on your right foot and power hungry mind you might break something.
My old Denali truck ran good and was holding 630s very well then upped the boost 715rwhp did 3 pulls and broke piston #7 (boost spike).

Yes, It's all about the conditions you run the car in and the tune!!! I've seen guys running the dog sh.. our of their cars on 91 octane in over 100 degree heat and blow the motor and say - what did I do wrong? Really???

Just be smart about it - I think the best and most overlooked factor is the fuel - if your going to run hard, run a higher octane fuel. But you need to have the right tune to go with it...

I've been 650ish rwhp for 4 plus years now. LS3 with Maggie and bolt ons. Little over 9psi. I've done some drive line upgrades, but the motor hasn't been touched. About 25K miles since the blower added. At this power level, if you have good fuel, plenty of it (capable fuel pump), and a good tune....the motor will love you long time
