Cool stock fuel+s336 turbo=transmission carnage?

I'm just wondering because new industrial injection stock injectors are going inside the truck as well as a s336 turbo and waste gate.....


Big question is how is my trusty transmission gonna hold up?


I know that I'm looking into a RCD torque converter, but do I honestly need a fully built transmission?

Any advice?

You won't make much more horsepower than you do now with an S366, so you'll have the same stock transmission concerns you do now.

Tuning plays a big part in transmission life, as well. So does driving style/habits.

I assume you're not doing these mods to drive back and forth to church.

OK just to clarify, this is really just a concern, I don't get on it everytime that light turns green but when im late for church, every road is a dragstrip!!!

Check my other 5r discussion thread on here and the Army. Alot say that stock fuel shouldnt kill a 5r, but I killed one in my 6.0 and am pretty close to killing the one in my 6.4 just running big tunes.

I was looking into doing a single on mine, but was leaning more towards a S472. I just can't find much info on them.
