'91 3.8 turbo questions?

I looked at this local car yesterday.

http://www.parkplaceltd.com/vehicle.aspx?stockNo=6349&title=1991%20Porsche%20911%20Turbo%20-%20739hp%202%20Dr%20Coupe&inv=330&vin=WP0AA2964MS480221&pos=36&current=1&size=50&nav=All&filter=(Make='PORSCHE')


Dyno says: ChipC2 turbo Euro 8 (I assume that means a chipped 3.8) w/EFI

Torque is 606# @ 5800 and peak HP with 15.5 boost at 7500rpm
new injectors @ 60 psi and 1 bar boost

(14.5# =1 bar ? )

So turbo guys tell me what you really think? Grenade waiting to explode or monster car? How should the engine have been built to stay in one piece? 7500 redline? Isn't that unusual and fairly extreme? 15.5# boost ?


I know nothing about turbo engines and need a quick education. I should have a copy of the engine build sheet later today. Thanks for the help.
