How much can original gearboxes handle?

I keep daydreaming about swapping cams, chip, injectors etc.

Aiming to get like 180BHP and up

How much can the 5 speed handle in the 156?

And out of curiosy.. how much power can specific gearboxes handle? :>

Aha, good good, now I have narrowed it down to two gearboxes.
One can withstand 200 Nm and the other can withstand 300.

Which one is which ?
