With what you have there, you will be fine with the stocker, unless you drive like Richard Petty everywhere. The consensus is around 500hp is what these tranny's will take and live. If you ever decide to get injectors over 155cc, I would get the transmission gone through.
This is one place it pays to go overkill. You want the tires to be the weak link in the driveline. Buy the toughest baddest parts you can afford and have a reputable shop put them in and never worry.
If you haven't already, do a coolant flush and swap over to cat ec-1 elc(extended life coolant). While the truck is torn apart, rebuild the oil cooler, new stand pipes and dummy plugs and an stc fitting(if it's 05-07 model)
some will say that unless the oil and coolant temps are over 15* apart, don't fool with the oil cooler, but it's 250 bucks or so for the kit and not very hard to do.
05 f250 ( double your pleasure ) underway
'10 f250 ccsb 4x4, project super mom 366/515 compounds, 200hp sticks, and all the other goodies
Most importantly, the car seat mod
