Let's be clear..... The BIG shiny block DOES NOT............ Make any power by itself UNLESS, (A) you have no shiny block at all. (B) the one you had that was replaced by the bigger more efficient shiny block (C) you are pushing the current turbo too hard and regardless of shiny block on not, will NOT be able to recover from the heat being generated from the over spin. (D) some catastrophic failure that has occurred in which the operator shouldn't be trying to drive the car.
The reason for a big shiny block is to allow more HP to be generated safely and attempt to keep charge temps as close to ambient as possible to help keep excessive heat related detonation (BAD) away.
