I'd like to see it handle roughly about 500 wheel hp eventually. I do know that s5-47 stands for synchronized five forward speeds and rated to 47 ft.lbs. of tourque times ten which is 470 and the older s5-42's are obviously 420 but I seriously believe the gearboxes are seriously under rated because obs ps have 500 ft.lbs. stock. Oh and I'm probably making 300 to the wheels if that as of now

Interesting I could be wrong either way it's making more than 500 ft.lbs. now and it's holding up I just feel this luk clutch is my issue

In 3 trucks I put tuners in, I smoked the clutches in less than 3 days each. The last one had less than 1 year and about 8k on the NEW clutch.

I must have some strong running trucks to smoke 3 clutches

I thought you could sell the whole swap kit for around a thousand bucks... That's what my buddy paid for his.
