some say it can handle 300hp..some not
I want some hear some voices on if the xt6 tranny could handle around 50% over stock..
ie; if a turbo ej20/ej22 was mated to it

They did not offer this tranny with the SVX, only the auto because it could not handel the 3.3's power.
Heck, the auto couldn't handle the 3.3's power. I know it could if it was properly cooled (via tranny cooler) but factory stock, it wasn't the case. Put a shift kit and tranny cooler on that baby and the skies the limit. Actually, a shift kit and tranny cooler seems like it would be the ticket on most autos.

One question tho... If you are going EJ why not just use the EJ trans as well?

Remember its Bad drivers that kill trannies not HP
Fixed for you

and by gone thru by just swapping them in and out. 2WD XT turbo tranny lasted thru the worst abuse EVAR!!!!!
FT4WD single range from an XT lasted thru the 3rd worst case of abuse...still VERY hard running.
the two RX boxes I have were used for serious autoxing and serious launching. Still running smooth and quiet.
