Curious how much more power that would make?

Are you just talking about swapping out the turbo wheels? There's only a couple companies that offer them right now.

2011-2013 Ecoboost F-150 Replacement Billet Batmo Turbo Wheels - Mak Performance

The gains are pretty good, but they put off A LOT of turbo spool noise. I'm not sure if I could deal with that much spool noise on a daily driver.

I'm talking about bigger turbos, not just different wheels in the stock housings. I've read the stock turbos are too small to make much more power than stock.

I'm curious about this too. It would be cool to see what these motors can take

The edge has had this engine longer IIRC and I've seen a 600hp edge with upgraded turbos from the explorerforum.com, so it's doable if you want to go that route...

That's the kind of information for which I'm looking. Do you have a link to a thread about that edge? Thank you.
