If the motor can safely handle 125-150% the boost, they can likely eek out another 50-150 horses if need be.
I was more or less told exactly that while on the BMW M6 press drive event (read my M6 review). It is the reason BMW M went back and reworked the S63 (X5 M and X6 M) into the S63tu. They want more reliability to be able to turn up the power in the future.
