There's a wide range of scenarios to answer that question. Maybe a 50 shot if it's kept within safe RPM.

I would think it should handle a 75 shot, if anything fails, it will probably be the head gasket. Do a good gasket and some ARP head bolts, colder plugs and a timing bump down, might even be able to blast a 100 shot. 8)
