If you drag race and or beat on it, I would worry about breaking drivetrain stuff. Also 04's have weaker drivetrain componets after the transmission than the 05-06's. There are many people with stock drivetrain componets with well over X amount of power over stock. I just finished reading about this guy that has 745rwhp that is still on stock drivetrain.

Do susupension, wider rims, and good tires before adding that kinda power, or you will just waste it by spinning.
