Few Questions

This winter I will be working on my truck again. Pulling the tranny and Tq converter having it built for more hp. Right now its only built for 400hp, and I'm way over that.

Anyways i was wonder how much hp will the stock flex plate hold? Is it worth pulling forged rods out to have them cryo? Is it worth having the stock flex plate cyro? At what hp should you have a girdle?



Thanks,


I'm sure i'll think of more questions so be ready

I went to a different track, and the same setting and non boosted launch ran a mid 13's
