I would say, if you are only doing the big three(i.e., intake, exhaust, tuner), there is no reason you should have any doubt in the OE tranny. The bulk of the blown tranny's, I say again!, The bulk of failed tranny's is from severe abnormal use and abuse. It is not an HD transmission! Once again, IT IS NOT A HEAVY DUTY TRANSMISSION! It is strictly a light duty transmission as it was engineered and designed to be. Once you understand this about the 545/65RFE, YOU WILL BE A MUCH WISER MAN. IT IS NOT MADE for superchargers as most experienced here will gladly tell you. 17500 miles and tranny pulls strong enough with a full year of weekend boat hauling to the fishin spots, Haulin landscape materials for the yard, and the occasional washer, dryer, or refrigerator to friends and family. Normal use.........
