Default 2.7T stock block - limits

Hoping to have my engine running fine and ready for tuning, I want to get a better picture of what the stock block can handle. While my setup is not really comparable to most out there, I would still like to get a good overview picture of what common setups for the 2.7T run on stock block.

Boost curve

Setups (any, not limited to):
Agressive K04 (for high boost/torque at low rpm; like mine)
Tial 605
Tial 770
Any Garretts

My setup will spool VERY fast (peak boost no later than 3k rpm); 4 bar MAP sensor so the 'sky (uuhm, rod) is the limit'. Hgh HP numbers from late spooling (think Tial or Garretts) need to be 'translated' into 'rod breaking force' . Pretty sure 300 HP at 3k are worse than 720 HP at 7200 rpm (same 525 lb*ft of torque) as far as 'rod stress' is concerned.

May have to detune down low to give the block a fighting chance?

The more (data, experience, logs, charts, etc.) the better.....
