big turbo?

16psi out of a small turbo wont yield the same power out of a big turbo, simple as that. Its not so much the PSI your running as the power your making.

you can make 700 hp out of a z6.

its just how long will it last. it might make it once or twice, but its not going to last for ever, thats for sure...
he was runnign a thick ass head gasket and some serious water injection. as long as you keep cyl temps low. the pistons will retain their ringlands. thats why water injection seems to be a must for any serious stock block efforts. if you can keep the temps down and the pinging out of the picture you can essentially boost until you max out the potential of your rods.
