I have a 2010 ford focus with the 2.0L duratec engine, I am currently in the process of putting a 2.3L head onto this engine which fits no problem. I am then gong to fit my focus with a .48 ar turbo. The engine with all the changes I have made will be built for up to 600 horsepower. I did some researching and found out my manual mtx-75 trans only can hold up to 200 lbs of torque. This won't be enough for the power my engine will be pushing which I'm going to set up for 400 hp. Does anyone have any ideas on what i can do to beef up my transmission or a different transmission that could hold at least more horsepower then mine does now?

Oh wow I didn't know that thanks a bunch you guys! Another question I have is about the axles?... I have heard that those can snap somewhat easy... Any way to reinforce them or are there stronger ones out there?..

IDK who told you that but we have some pretty strong axles for cars. I wouldnt worry about upgrading, Ive been cutting consistant 1.7 60ft on slicks for a while now with no problems. BUt driveshaft shop does make some axles if you call them.

I bought a spec 4+ clutch, will that be sufficient? or should I get a higher grade?
and the head i have coming still has the stock intake, I have rods and pistons built for 800 hp on my ebay watch list those should be okay right? The pistons and rods are made for a 8.5:1 compression ratio also
