    Transmission Selection Question

    Iv been checking out alot of aftermarket companies websights on aftermarket transmissions. They offer little information on the power capabilities these trannies can take. My project is going to initially be a N/A Iron 402 LS1 but will eventually supercharge it once I get a bug up my ass for more power. Anyone have any suggested transmission choices? I know going with an Auto will probably be best but Im kinda liking the manual so whats out there on the manual side that will handle 550++ hp.. Probably will want to look at one that will handle 800+ hp incase I decide to go FI.

    Torque shock is generally what kills a transmission. A stock six speed might last a while behind that kind of power if you could refrain from power on shifts.

    That said, there are guys out there getting viper performance parts put in their boxes to take the additional strain. I'm sure someone out there has more experience with them though.
