    max rwhp in stock ls1 drivetrain?

    Hey guys I have a c5 with some boltons and I'm pushing 350rwhp after my last dyno tune. I thinking about dropping a new cam sometime soon, but I was wondering what is roughly the max rwhp that you can run in a stock C5 drivetrain before you start getting problems? (aka breaking things?) I'll prolly get a driveshaft loop (is that even what c5s have with the rear mounted tranny and all?) But I'm thinking of getting a set of drag radials or even slicks for the track. I don't race that often, so what do u think would be the limit these drivetrains can handle? (6spd, by the way)

    Well in my C4, that I used to road race, I was putting down 450 rwhp with the stock drivetrain and never had any problems...............

    3:15s in autos I believe and 3:42s in manuals.

    Don't know much about the vettes, but the T-56 or M6 or 6 speed as you would like to call it will handle the power your talking about all day and all night. They are very tough transmissions. Other then that, I can't say.

    wouldn't want to fight them!
