Transmissions handle shock load not torque, read the post titled Transmission FAQ for more info. NO ONE knows what the OEM trans will hold as they have blown from stock to highly modified with a long life as it depends on the driver more than anything else. If you are asking this question, odds are you need to upgrade and you should do so carefully as there are many options and this is a long and complicated decision tree.

If the motor doesn't "need" to be built. Spend the money on a six speed swap.

I was planning on building my motor with intent of finally bolting up my blouch 20g XT. But instead I did a six speed swap because my motor still has some life left in it.

There are plenty of post just like this.

5 speeds (even the early ones) are not made of glass. They don't like to be abused though. Some people trash them with stock power. There are plenty out there with around 300hp/330tq that are holding up just fine.

The bottom line is if you are making less than 350hp/tq, then it's on you and your ability not to blow it up.
