The hp difference between the turbo coming out in 2013 and the turbo available now (6758) is 50hp. The turbos are actually interchangeable, so you wouldn't need to swap the turbo just the guts if/when you decide to upgrade. With your statement, increasing the timing and boost puts wear and tear on the motor someway, somehow. It's the risk we take when we mod our vehicles. I certainly think with the correct tune, mods, and pump gas that the car will be absolutely fine in the sub 400awhp range. It's not so much a power adder, or horsepower queen for me. If I wanted that I would slap on a 20g and not look back. It's the fact that this turbo delivers damn near stock spool AND the power it puts down is a happy/medium for what I am looking for.
My opinion is what's the point of modding the vehicle if not to push it?
