TORQUE BREAKS TRANSMISSIONS ************ AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

220-250 FTLBS (dynojet) seems to be where they're breaking consistently. This said by the guy with ~280 djRWHP and a 5 speed who's planning to put 350 djRWHP through it.

Some newb might actually use the search function and read the couple posts that look like they have actual info in this thread, get bad info, then spread that bad info like the gospel.
