I think that the timecerts would cure the studs pulling out. The problem with the alloy that the Porsche case used is the basic strength (Tensile Strength) and deformation under load at high temperature (creep). I don't think it would hold up very long as a turbo motor.

A magnesium turbo motor would be interesting, one third lighter than aluminum. There are even alloys available now that could probably pull it off. Google Magnesium-Elektron.
