How much power can the xdrive system handle? post what you are making!

Hey there fellow bimmians,
How much power do we think the xdrive system on our e9x cars can handle?
i am looking to do the pure stage 2 turbo upgrade on my n55 and that would bring it up to about 500whp. do we think the xdrive and supporting components could handle this??

MT and running - FFTEC/Vishnu Single Turbo | Procede Rev 3 | Spec Stage 2+ Clutch | Spec Aluminum Flywheel | ETS FMIC | HKS Legamax Exhaust | Vishnu PWM Meth

This is also only at peak 21psi due to it being a daily driver running on CA 91 gas + 50/50 meth, so could crank it up with better fueling if ever desired

Got my car used so im not sure what the previous owner had done....I dont think anything from the looks of the car. But im at 71k miles with minimal mods...FMIC/intake Stage1+. Car seems to be handling fine. I drift it all winter long as we get snow(easier on the tires) Im probably harder than most on my car tbh and have yet to experience any xfercase/engine/trans issues.

It's just a naming convention everyone is using for stock frame turbo upgrades.

LOL-

I think you'll be ok, you just need the appropriate tuning.

I've sense upgraded to the RB evos- so more power to come

Also note- when my diff went my front driveshaft was bent- caused the car to vibrate really bad from about 55-70 mph
