Might be worth googling around the Mini Cooper S world, they have the same Getrag tranny. I know a guy that boosted his to 400 hp, he didn't mention any tranny or axle upgrades or failures, but that's not to say 1 data point is enough to call it safe.

Just thought another car with the same trans might be worth surfing forums to see how that community feels about high power int he Getrag trans.
