Question

Could you go so far into savanting with Allomancy that it kills you?

Like what if Spook decided to constantly Flare tin years earlier? Would the extreme Savanting eventually kill him or would it just become so extreme that his abilities would be effectively unusable?

I ask this because becoming a Savant involves your soul being saturated in Investiture for long periods of time which causes 'cracks' in your Spiritweb, could these cracks grow so much that they kill you or is there a kind of limit on Savantism.

The soulcasting Savant in Oathbringer (Kaza - Interlude 4) shows that you can die of savantism. The Coppermind notes that Pewter Savantism often leads to death (but that is more psychological than a direct consequence like Soulcasting Savants).

Spoiler

Seekers, for example, often become savants without being aware of it, granting them a boost to the range of their abilities. However, some metals warp the body of savants much more. Tin savants experience such magnification of their senses that they can become incapacitated by bright light or loud sounds. Pewter Mistings often die before becoming savants,[4] as they feel neither pain nor exhaustion to any great extent and therefore may ignore wounds that later prove fatal.
