Default How long will stock 4l60e survive on MS3?

Like the title says. I have a stock tranny and rear. Have 4.10s,Vigilante 3000,bolt ons,TNT 150 shot. Been spraying off the line for a while on this shot and no rearend or tranny problems yet. But i know they're coming. How long do you guys think the tranny will last on the MS3 with 3500 Vigilante,4.10s,and 150 shot?

This may be a dumb question but do you have a tranny cooler? If not you should invest ina agood one and a trans temp guage..I have a permacool with a fan and a 4000 stall, been running it a year with no problems.

What kind of 60 foot times are you getting spraying out of the hole?

You'd be surprised what the stock 10 bolt can handle behind an automatic...M6 is a different story.
