I hear the Tremec T56 has a torque rating of 400 ft lbs. So for you guys modifying/tuning your engines w/ an M6, have you done anything to make your tranmission handle the extra torque? How much torque can the stock T56 actually handle without causing problems (at what point would the transmission start to be the weak link)?
