So, I'm asking the veteran builders here, what power can the stock LS6 short-block handle?

I have a book on modifying LS engines. It says that the LS6 can handle up to 550 hp. After that, you need to replace the aluminum pistons.

I figure with the Magnuson s/c I should be approaching 525 to 550 at the flywheel.
