500hp at the wheels on stock turbo

I've done some searching, I couldnt find anything concrete, but maybe I suck at searching. I know 500 hp at the wheels is relatively accepted as unattainable on stock injectors, even with a bigger turbo. My question is how attainable is 500 to the ground with bigger injectors on a stock turbo...for that matter, how much is the stock turbo good for? I guess that's really a question of how much fuel can you ad with stock air volume before something melts down, valve, piston, ect, lol.

I have 175/30's, just curious what to expect come dyno time, after my transmission woes are sorted out first that is. Eventually either a hybrid or stage 2 is in the works, I know that'll put me safely over the 500 mark, just curious...thoughts?

I would darn well hope so... IMO it should be around 480-500. With a stage 2/Hybrid should be around 530-535

190s with the stock turbo will have tough time breaking 500. yours will probably be around 470-480. Obviously the stock turbo is the big limiting factor. Horsepower isn't as easy to come by as some people make it seem

That's what I am doing wrong! I should be spending my money on stickers not saving for turbos and injectors
