If you read on the turbo forum, there are lots of guys w/ 400HP turbos that use a 915. If a car is to be tracked, it can be a problem. For a street car, it would take a long time to blow it up, which usually shows up as a sheared 3rd gear.

There are better 915 cases, R&Ps and myriad aftermarket upgrades that can extend the life of a 915. Considering what a core G50 costs these days, as well as the cost of conversion parts, it is still cheaper to built a 'tits' 915 and rebuild it occasionally than do a G50.
