Default Transmission power level?

Coming from the LX world and knowing what the NAG-1 tranny could handle. Was curious as to what can the trans in the truck handle? like horsepower/torque numbers...

Appreciate any insight

I don't think very many (if any) people here can give you a good answer. reason being the hp levels. Only a couple of forced induction trucks here and 1 or 2 of them have just been in the last month. I occasionally see someone running a 75-100 shot of N2O but most of the hp levels top out around 360 rwhp +/-.

I would like to know a ballpark number myself. Fastfreddie prob has the most trips down the 1/4, he runs somewhere in that 360rwhp range and I think he is on his 2nd trans...the motor has 200k miles.

intake, programmer and exhaust and we're putting over 400 to the tranny...doesn't take much...I have plans for mine when I come back from Korea next year...either this stroker or this one and power trip pkg.....should be putting down some pretty good NA hp

i think 500hp is the max, thats why the srt10 viper QC truck uses the 4 speed auto from the cummins and the 2 dr uses a 6 speed manual.
