Default 03 6.0 LQ4 crank hp rating?

thinking about freshing up my 6.0 stock shortblock , i know the weak link is the rods and pistons , so they will be upgraded , so far this motors been very good to me in stock form (over 600rwhp on spray )
but with 70k miles on it , it's on borrowed time im sure .

reason i ask is im on a tight budget

will a stock crank handle 600-700 rwhp ?

All day long with a properly balanced engine, assuming you are not spinning it to the moon.
Good luck!
