The only major bottleneck anyone has hypothesized is that the LPFP cannot flow enough to maintain that power level, but that has yet to be directly confirmed.
I actually asked a similar question in post#19.

500whp seems to be the cap until the AFR starts to look too lean for comfort. Dz recently found out that the Cobb was able to alter the DME to fix this issue (if any).

Here's a dyno of the RB where afr goes lean up top and i'm sure boost was taper down at the end.
