stock transmission holding power??

Hey guys I have pretty much stock transmission other then the addition of a ATS five star converter and Spartan TCM how much power do you think is safe to run through it before I need a full transmission? also I noticed that suncoast sells rebuild kit that come with all new clutches, steels, and a TransGo shift kit. would that be a worth while investment??

My truck made it a long time, after 45k miles and repeat massive abuse it finally broke. It took alot more abuse than I would have imagined, most of those whom have broken there transmissions have been beat to hell and back. I know my truck made 50 plus 4WD launches at the track on fuel and nitrous rolling on 35" Toyos without a hitch. It was 6 months later that the tranny finally crapped out. I went back with a Suncoast and I have been very happy with it so far!

My truck lasted exactly one run down the 1/4 mile with the 310 tune. A week later she was dead, and still is dead!...lol I have about $4k worth of Sun Coast parts sitting in my office waiting to be installed. Sun Coast is supposed to have a few new parts available for out trucks but those parts have been "two weeks out" for over a month now. I'm thinking about moving on with what I already have.

FWIW, I had some bad wheel hop on my pass with the 310 and I'm running on 37's. I believe that had a lot to do with the death of my stock trans.
