I'm just tryin to make sure I'm not missin anything here before I go and blow mine up. How much horsepower is the stock bottom end, tranny and torque conveter, heads w/o studds, holdin. Bassicly, how far can you push em with stock stuff

Different levels for each I guess you could say. Head gaskets can blow in stock form. Torque converter can hold up to 500-550 horsepower. Tranny internals seem to be holding up beyond 600 horsepower. The stock bottom end is pretty stout, but there has been a recent discovery of cracked cylinder heads, and that is raising some thoughts on how much heat the motor can handle. High heat and pressure are a diesel engines worst nightmare.

Right, So bassicly after chip intake and exhaust, its time to start on the tranny. I was thinkin the stock tranny was holdin like 700ish. Didnt Rudys dyno that 1041 on a stock motor other than injectors, and studs

your trans will probably hold til then but not for long if it does especially with spray. im pretty sure with the 310 tune and spray should get you 700

Yea, the only reason I probably still have a decent tranny is because I have never sprayed. Once you spray nitrous, the tranny starts to have a VERY limited life.

The only times I would ever spray would be on the dyno or drag racing. and thats only if I was p!ssed off or didnt like what I was seein. No more dodges in this town will hold a candle to this one. I hope
