But those would have been the weaker 3 speeds, not the 3.03 the OP has.

Don't think a 3 spd. would hold up in my setup. LOL...Somewhere between 767 hp and 1,017 hp it would blow. I'm guessing about 530 hp. Depending on weight of vehicle.

As I said before, it all depends on how you use or abuse it.

I also had a 57 Chevy with a 394 olds punched to 406 with a slant pan hydro tranny. Could blow *** ends at will at any speed under 50.

That's true, transmissions wasn't the only things I broke, in the quest for power and speed anything connected to the crankshaft is subject to failure, even the crankshaft.

Back when I did a V8 swap in an 89 Ranger everyone said the 7.5 rear wouldn't hold up. It lasted a couple years before it started leaking gear oil out of the right side brake drum. Swapped in an Explorer 8.8. The stock tiny u joint driveshaft lasted even longer until I tried a dry burnout on a rough asphalt parking lot, and dumping the clutch, dropping the hammer on the Toploader 4 speed. The 275/60's bit too hard and the middle portion of the shaft snapped. (the solid splined portion) The tiny U joints held, (amazingly)
