I would stay under 50 horse over stock, that should be plenty safe. Look for chips that address your trans when you get one. Add a trans temp gage and some extra cooling if you want much more than the 50, even good stuff to have no matter what power you run.
Now, how the heck did you find one with just 45K on it? Sounds very light to me.

Nothing stock left on her and not a nut, bolt, hose, or wire on there that I didn't put where it is.
