Not considering emissions... The numbers don’t seem to so exciting, the 4B11T in my car creates approximately 620hp with a stock block and it’s daily driven.
I don’t understand why manufacturers haven’t really pushed since some 2.0L engines are capable of pushing those numbers with simple bolt-ons.
Is your motor covered by the manufacturer's warranty? You're claiming about 50% greater power than it came out of the factory rated for - circa 400bhp in the UK market, significantly higher than any other market and only fitted in a "special edition" (FQ400) - so I'm guessing not.
Manufacturers have to build in the necessary "idiot factor" in to their products. Whilst you are doubtless careful to look after your car, many buyers aren't. They just fill it up and drive it. Hopefully they remember to get it serviced on schedule, but many don't as can be seen in the second hand market.
