A built T-56 can handle a lot of abuse. And Vertiviper, go n/a all the way. Use quality, solid internals (stroked would be best), good set of heads (up your compression a bit), good intake, and a hella cam with your basic bolt ons and you will have a power monster that will last you a long time.

I don't know why everyones always ragging on the T56, overall its one of the best transmission designs on the market. Its only been recently surpassed by the new Tremec TR6060, which is a derivative of the T56, used in the GT500 and Pontiac G8 GT.
The T56 in Mustang Cobras seems to have no problem handling everything from stock or highly modified engines, its all in the internals. Seems that the F-bod T56 is definitely an internally inferior unit compared to the Mustang Cobra T56.

With 8 grand you could put a 600hp 403 or 408.
