I did have,Joe from Crescent had it built, not sure by who. Also had a 3000rpm converter. It lived longer than my 5.0 motor, which says a lot.

Oh and they reckon 350hp is all they can be made to handle.

I have a few scenarios....
A stock 5.0 with either a Vortech S-trim or Kenne Bell
Or a 351C with between 450-500hp
Or a 6.8L V10 with more than 400lb/ft from 1900rpm

I think the turbo 6 guy's running these gearboxes and having them survive are likely the key to this.....so it's torque capacity not power we are concerned about.

Thanks for the replies lads!...anyone else?

MV automatics have a fue BTR's running big hp through them.

He also has 1JZ gearboxes rated at big hp and 8 second passes

Ive chatted 2 him before and he is really switched on and dosent charge an arm and a leg.
