Default How much hp will a w56 hold up to?

How much horsepower will a stock w56 hold up to? I have a GN1 turbo motor Im putting in my truck and wondering if my tranny will hold up to that much much power. Stock is around 240 hp, I might be around 300hp+ when its in the truck.

I wouldn't run that motor through that trans. Toyota wouldn't run it behind their own 4 cyl turbo or V6s. Its a similar transmission to the AX5 behind 4 cyl Jeeps.

Swap up to the R15x series and adapt your t-cases. These are roughly the same as the AX15s behind 4.0 Jeeps.

I think I'm going to run a NV4500 and use my toy tcases, but I have been told the tcases wont hold up to that much power either?
