It was the torque converter that gave it up in mine before the trans. I have always heard that the torque converters were the weak link more so than the transmission itself. My guess is it will hold up as good as it would in front of a stock trans. It would really depend on what you were doing with it and the power going through it.

You can get a 6.0TC that has a 7.3 cover for much less..holds a 6.0 so its a great mod. JW uses a similar TC in all his builds.
very intresting.
