On street tires with a soft hitting clutch, it might last a little while. On slicks or getting good traction, I doubt it will hold up very long at all at that power level.

Watch the classified for a used Lentech AOD.

I picked up a low mile Lentech AOD complete with cooler and new converter
for $1,500 out of the corral for sale section. $4,000+ trans new.

That's the kind of deal I'm looking for- I'll be on the lookout.

I cant believe your T5 will last at all unless your tires are so hard they are incapable of hooking at any speed. I had a built Gforce T5 that lasted 5k miles and then snapped when I rolled into 3rd gear on the freeway with just Nitto drag radials, which hooked marginally. The previous stock T5 lasted less than 50 miles at a lower boost setting. I now use a Lentech AOD with MT ET street radials and 0-60 is in the 2's on the street without even bothering to heat the tires.
If you don't need the overdrive of an AOD, it's hard to beat the strength of a prepped turbo 400 tranny.

I think it really depends on how you drive it and the traction your car gets. I have a z spec t-5 with a Spec stage III on the 408 (617 rwhp). Not quite the same power level but way above what the transmission is capable of.

I don't power shift, and the drag radials dont hook well into third gear. With that being said, I seem to burn up clutches faster than my poor T-5. I've been thru 2 Stage IIIs and a bunch of Zoom Kevelars before. Slowly but surely, I will have the $$$ for a Viper Spec T-56....Please hold out T-5 till then!!!!!

That was at 20#'s of boost. The motor mounts are stock, although the solid motor mounts are in progress since those are a little cheaper than a tranny.

So far I've only driven it on the street. I have it on drag tires right now(hopefully popo's don't have a cow) just so I can keep traction.

it's hard to beat the strength of a prepped turbo 400 tranny.


Anybody got recommendations of a shop that makes prepped turbo 400's?
Thanks, Neil.

What turbo kit is that?

It started out as a Vecco kit hotside, but it didn't fit right of course( got it super cheap ), so I murdedred the hell out of it, and from there on out, I did everything myself.

on your glenns performance kit do you have twin pumps? and if so do you have lines gong direct to back of each rail?
