What 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 you are going to be dropping an arm and leg into the car so you might as well do it right, either tko 500/600 or t56 is fine. Both have pros and cons which you could research. You said your stock trans is going out so its not worth much probably. Dont forget with your new combo you will need a whole new fuel system as well to support all your new power.

The 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.

Thanks,

Chris

what exactly do you guys consider to be a "power shift" just so I am clear? Slamming the gear?

Powershifting is basically when your foot never leaves the gas when your are shifting between gears.:nono:

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-Speed:)

send it to promotion and have your T45 built up.
its about half the cost of a T56 and you will be able to handle more power.

I paid about 1600 with shipping and new clutch set up with new cable and quadrant.
