Velvia Question

How many stops over neutral grey will Velvia retain colour and detail? I'm playing around with a test roll in anticipation of using it for a photo tour in the fall. I know that it is very high contrast, so i would expect to blow out to white/clear, but I'm not sure how much highlight range I have to play with. On my K10D, I know that if i spot meter something white and set the EV compensation to +1.7, I'm right on the limit of blowing out the highlight.

Thanks in advance!
