What would be a good built up and modified T-350HD max torque capacity estimate? I read some where that the stock unit was rated at 165 ft/lbs. I am curious because of my Neon TDI conversion project I am doing as the stock TDI I have is rated at 144 ft/lbs. With very minimal modification this TDI will do 200 ft/lbs at 2000rpm. So I am going to have to customize the Neon transmission if possible or use a TDI gearbox.

Any experienced input would be greatly appreciated.

Going from post #3, if it can handle up to 500 hp, I 'm sure something that makes 500 horses, is putting down over 200 ft lbs for a good percentage of that 500 hp.

You will be, like a boosted engine, putting more load on the higher gears than a N/A 2.0. But some common sense generally helps out there.

I'm sure Chipdogg can build you an MTX that will fill your needs.

Patience, of course, is a very powerful weapon, but sometimes I start to regret that it is not a firearm.
