I believe the transmission problems come from tuned motors with over 400 RWHP. It's so easy to get huge power from the 5.9. As long as you don't go much over a 100 hp tune, you'll be fine. If it has the 6sp manual, those are bullet proof, too much hp, the clutch will slip. She will tow that trailer like a dream.
