Si engine/transmission tolerance?

Just curious if anyone has any numbers on how much hp/torque k24's and transmissions can handle ? Tried looking around and it seems to be agreed upon that the engine on stock internals can hold roughly 450 give or take a little bit. If I could have a more seasoned member back that up it would be much appreciated

The Achilles heal of the drive train is the clutch - have seen a few and heard of many broken ones.

This is by design! I would much rather break a clutch than a gearbox or differential any day.

For me the clutch would be a must with the added hp/torque. Just trying to get an idea of how well the rest of the drivetrain would hold up under nearly double the power?
