So some research has led me to the conclusion that the block and crank are good for well over 500hp as claimed by other foci members. So that takes care of that question. But does anyone know about the axles or Getrag tranny itself? Some members are saying that over 300whp to do a 5speed swap because the MTX-75 holds high TQ, but some say the opposite...... Tom is claiming over 350tq with a LSD. Im just a little worried about longevity because like i said this will be a DD, and im not sure Tom drives his as much as i will...... Anyone have direct experience with Axle failure or Tranny failure do to high TQ numbers?????

Please help Lol
