Drivetrain Question

I've been looking into upgrading some stuff on the car finally, throwing new exhausts, obx headers, etc. I got to looking at turbo kits and chips.

But then the question came to mind on exactly how much the drivetrain or the rest of the car can handle that kind of power. Does anyone know about how much horsepower/torque the drivetrain can handle before needing an upgrade?

mtx can take a lot. I'd upgrade the clutch & since your there I'd add a torsen & a set of CFM's control arms for more forward bite. They do make a difference. Add a Steeda sts too.
