Billy T. was running almost 500hp with stock internals before his engine let go, so some where around there. I would say 400hp saftley before upgrading, but hell if you got the money to produce 400hp out of your 1.8, why wouldn't you splurge for the internals in the first place?

It doesn't really cost that much $$$ to get 400hp out of a 1.8T. If you already have an exhaust, you could do it for about $2k if you really hunt around and get some reasonably easy to find bargains. New Internals would more than double that cost. Also Billy lost his motor because he sprayed. I don't know of a single high HP 1.8T that blew without spray yet.
