It will hold up to 330-360 then again - your milage may vary...some people had problems stock, some were fine. Wxman is pushing over 500 on his and he's fine.

Some thing it's a clutch related issue as well as the tranny.

If you worried - you can swap the tranny to W58 fairly easily (they are cheap to get too)

quit saying that. damn. that's his race gas number. He's running 420 or something daily, if he's running 14psi all the time. I'd guess he probably backs it off a little just to be nice on the engine like most people and then cranks it to 14-15 or so when he wants to have fun.

although debatable, it's a power thing w/ the tranny. It just can't take it and the W58 is a bandaid solution at best. Just postponing having to buy a r154 or v160.

no offense intended goldark- I've just seen that said about Wxman's car more than once.


btw: marc you know I like you're car I just don't want people to think they're fine on 5hundo daily.. know what I'm sayin' ;)

you should be OK w/ the tranny. A s/c is going to be a little easier on a tranny than a turbo. It's linear and has a little less torque so it should be fine.

lol, well said my friend. I am running about 1 bar daily (14 psi). On my setup, that equates to around 450 rwhp or so with comparable torque. I still think the clutch is key and how you drive the car.
