2.0 Power Handling

Hey guys, just wondering, I'm seeing these power ratings for transmissions and engines. How much power can the 2.0L 8v handle? The article about the beetle turbo s, said it could only handle 260hp so only 80hp over the current power. I'm looking to turbo my car through eip and want to know if i'll have to do any drivetrain upgrades to accomodate 100hp more. Thanks to all who respond.

you will probably need a good clutch and tranny - possibly a ported/polished head, and some pistons - and your on your way to 300 hp

(with quite a lot of booste of course)
