I am interested in learning what the largest possible size would be for a cartridge, I'm not sure if the Super Game Module allows for larger cartridge sizes, but I do know it has more RAM for the system to use. I was also wondering if mapper chips would allow it to access 512k.

Largest possible size with no mapper: 32K.
Largest possible size with mappers: sky is the limit, although MegaCart is 1MB and SGC is 512KB in its current incarnation. SGC2 for SGM2 is 8MB with no mapper.
