how much power can a ea81 4 speed d/r gearbox take without 'exiting stage left'

the reason i ask is that i think i have scored a ej and need to know if my 'box is going to be strong enough.
don't know what size of ej it is yet it was offered to me by my G/F's father who is a v8 man and had no idea that subaru's came in differnt sizes......

thanks for any help

he's running fat feet isn't he? stock'ish diameter wheels wouldn't put as much stress on the gearbox, would it?

Are you planning on modifying the ej? They are not that powerful stock, so the box would probably be ok untill you mod it...

i got to find out just what ej it is yet, i was told its a 2.4L so i figger it's either a 2.2 or 2.5 . gearbox should be coming with it but again i don't know if its manual or auto. but hey its cheap as so i thought why not i can always sell the ej trans if i don't want it

as long as it cranks 130hp or more i can live with it stock.......for awhile:brow:
