Getrag Transmission: How much HP/Torque can it withstand?

I'm just curious about this. I'm actually thinking of only 300-350 hp. Can it take that or do I need something beefier?

Speed's COTA coverage was poor

I watched most of the race and all I saw was Daytona Prototypes. They barely even mentioned the GT's or the other class and it was the GT's I wanted to watch. I was very disappointed.

See my post regarding Sea Foam. The back side of your intake valves are probably getting carboned up. I think it blocks off the air and makes that cylinder(s) run rich.
