Increase the Power capabilities of STEVAL-ILD004V1

I need to support a 2-wire 500W dimmer instead of just a 300W dimmer at 110VAC 60Hz US.

What are the power limiting components of the ST Dev Kit?
The 2 1N5404 diodes are only rated for 3A which would be 360W. Is this the limiting component?

Can I instead use something like S5GC-13-F which is a 5A 400V diode or even a 200V diode since I don't need to support 240VAC (this is a US only product).

Thanks in advance...
Eric
