Default how much power through your T56

in the T56 how hard is it to break the stock Main shaft?...im going into a Tranny swap and am getting a built one...and am wondering if i should get the total package...or jsut the Street/performance built one (stock main shaft)...or the ExtremeDuty/Race built one...(vipe main shaft)

i was told by a guy at FLP that he knows people who have done it with slicks...whats your take on it?...whats the highest power youhave runnin through your T56....built or not...what kinda numbers you puttin down trhought your T56 and what has bun done to it...if anything?..

thansks all

I think you should be more worried about your clutch burning up.

While you are at it, I would throw in a pilot bushing instead of the pilot bearing. When my pilot bearing crapped out, it took the main shaft with it. The bushing is one solid piece, so you don't have to worry about the bearing falling apart.
