Fortunately there is 4 more of them to share the load so 500 atw should be ok. the compression ratio is not really a problem as we are only running 10 psi or so.
any reason you went with the th400? I know they can be build very strong but the 700r4/4l60 can be built as well and give you more gears to work with and control of lockup etc with the electronic version.
