The M5R2 can handle 400+ ft/lbs (The whole reason it was used). A mild/medium small block shouldn't put out enough to break it. If you're going too wild you my have to look at the aftermarket (a T-5 style trans can be modified to fit).

Thank You for the info, the motor will be around 600 plus horse, twin turbo'd small block 351. BUT I won't be abusing it. lol yea right. OK welp does and one have a richmond 5 speed laying around?

The richmond 5-speeds are actually rated for about the same amount of torque.

Yes but much cheaper and easier to rebuild.lol
But to think of it those lighting rods would look great in a super coupe. anyone got a lenco? just kidding

I think I'll use the sc 5 speed tell it breaks, will give me some time to aquire the other stuff.
Thanks again for the info.
