How strong can a TC get in the North Atlantic?

Hello guys,
I’ve been a lurker from a while ago as Ive always been into weather and hurricanes since a young age. Currently I’m taking some final classes and I graduate with a bachelor in Geoscience/atmospheric science.
I got a presentation in about 2 weeks. One of the questions that Im going to touch on is how strong can a TC get in the north Atlantic Ocean based on SSTs? This is of course assuming all other conditions are ideal for tropical cyclogenesis. It’s more a hypothetical question.
All pro mets that can give me some input on the subject, i’d greatly appreciate it.

Thank you in advance

Check out Maximum Potential Intensity (MPI). It's such an important calculation that in fact, the LGEM intensity model is built off of the MPI.
