>From a performance standpoint the engine may be able to supply the extra 
bleed (with an economy and range penalty, of course) but consider the 
downstream effects.  To compensate for the increased flow, the pre-cooler 
will have to be upsized (located in the cowl or strut, depending on the 
engine) as well as the bleed air ducting in the wing.  Neither of these 
components are located in real estate that is easy or cheap to change.
