And Mike like a couple chimed in I would shoot for a T56. Should be able to handle the power you are laying and you get the bonus of a 6-SpeedWhat are the stock Transmission's limits?
I plan on shooting for between 550-650rwhp w/ a built bottom end.
If that will not cut it then what trans should i go with and how much is the stocker worth.
Mikey doens't need overdrive gears. He cruises at 4k and goes through clutches like eggs. Sounds mean tho hahaThe stock trans can handle about 450hp & no powershifting before it will take a crap. I think your best bet is to go with a T56 trans for three reasons. One, it can handle the power level that you looking to make with the car. Two, if you put a good size gear in it, you will have two overdrive gears to get better gas mileage & a lower cruising rpm. Three, you can get it easier used for a good price than a tko and they are easy to install in your car. I know, because I have one in my '98 Cobra and I love it alot. Especially with having a 4:56 rear gear and driving on the car on the highway.
