How much can this built trans handle?
So According to the builder my trans has this stuff in it:
99+ hardned input shaft
5.4 sun gear
billet 1-2 accumulator
bonded 2-3 accumulator
8 disc direct
welded direct drum
6 forward discs
kevlar intermediate/od bands
Its a 4r70w of course in a 96 gt.
Ive been pushing 440 rwhp to it, no problems at all.
I recall the builder telling me it should be good to 600 ft lb to the tire.
Im just curious if this should handle more and how I should actually take that.
What if I am making 1000 hp but only 600 ft lb of tq...would it be fine still?
What if I make 400 hp but 700 ft lb of tq? Would I really be in trouble?
Im just trying to gauge my next move with the car....
