It's quite clear that VW/Audi engineers don't specify the EA888 engine for high output applications.

It's also quite clear that ALL of their high performance (227 HP and up) 2.0 T engines use fortified versions of the EA113 engine.

I'm assuming that VW/Audi engineers know more about their engines than you do, so I'll stand behind their opinion, as demonstrated by their chosen applications.
