How well are Torqueshifts holding with added power?

Well my HPOP went out on my 07, so while its in the shop with the cab off, it's getting studs, EGR delete, oil cooler update, and SCT tunes. How well is everyones Torqueshifts holding to added power is what I'm curious of. With 168k miles I thought my tranny stock shifted DAMN good, and the fluid tested good before getting changed when I got the truck. Just curious on how big of tune I can run on the stock tranny (I'm not a kid who hot rods it everywhere either so no worries on that part either )

You can run whatever custom tunes you want, give it time to relearn after sct flash and then let it rip. Mine is still going strong northwards of 200k x race tunes as of now

Just wondering why you are getting the cab pulled for a new HPOP. Were you planning on doing studs before that happened? Anyways, I have 120k miles roughly and run the SRL and Looney for stock bolts and the trans is holding up just fine. Well it actually shifts better tuned. The 5r110 has a reputation of holding up very well to power and many run tuned trucks on stock transmissions.

Truck has been tuned since 100k miles.

Less labor cost considering the shop its at can have the cab off in 2 hours. And yeah studs were in the future anyways, might as well get it done while the thing is apart.

Your tranny wil hold up to as much power as stock turbo and injectors can put out. People say they are good to about 500rwhp if you don't beat it.
