What would it take to safely run a 930 at 1 bar on the track?

Ok, I am all over the place. Plan to rebuild a reportedly recently rebuilt motor due to a busted dilivar head stud and pitting on one cam. Part of me says to do just what needs to be done, and get back to driving.

Part, says to make to motor as bullet proof as possible and turn up the boost.

Prior owner was running 1.2 bar. I run 0.8 as I didn't want to grenade the motor...

Car has updated fuel head, oversized inter cooler, modified k27 turbo... Boost dial.

Prior owner said he got 400 hp out of it. I have been babying it, cause that's my nature. Kind of a low risk guy in a sense...

Turning down the boost, has caused rich afrs under boost, was going to adjust the WUR next...

But now, since I will have most of the motor apart anyway...maybe I can finish what the po started.

If I add super tech head studs, arp rod bolts...

Can I safely enjoy 1 bar on the track??? Not looking for crazy horsepower, but 1 bar would probably get me 375 hp... Which could be a bunch of fun on the track.

Would I need to do anything else? Just flow check the injectors?

Already added a front cooler and it runs quite cool...

Can such a motor last 50,000 miles???

Armchair quarterbacks, chime in .
