156 2.0T.Spark TURBO

I just brought a 156 2.0T.Spark that has been turbocharged.
The conversion was done by Turbonutters (regular on this forum).
What sort of power figures should be a safe limit for this vehicle's drivetrain to handle before running into issues with things like geaboxes, diffs and CVs?
As far as I know the drivetrain is standard except for a slightly lowered suspension.

Well done for acquiring that beauty!

All I know is that flat-out acceleration in turbo converted cars in top gear tend to wear that top gear rather quickly.

Member car:

GTV 2.8 Turbo

How long is a piece of string?
We have pushed a lot of power through the boxes with only 5th gear failing and that was down to the owner’s driving style.
Corrie on the other hand broke a couple of boxes but I think the history of the boxes was unknown and according to his failures the boxes ran without oil at some stage in there lives. His car produced 26?

Then again what can a UNO turbo box take since it is basically the same box.
