I have a turbo tibby and no problems with tranny or axles as yet - power = 212KW and 440NM at the flywheel.

After about 400 or so engine HP you will need to replace do something about your 5th gear as this is the wek link in the box.

Axles - as long as you don;t use slicks on sticky drag strips you will get wheel slip before anything major can go wrong with the axles.

Does anyone know of an online calculator to convert KW to HP, and NM to Lb-Ft.? Or , if not, what's the formula? I'm pretty good with algebra but I'm too lazy to figure it out. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Well now wait, those comments need clarification:

Old differentials (transmissions earlier than somewhere in early 99) seem to hold power better than the new ones. After somewhere in early 99, the production changed on the stock diff and they hold about 220WHP before they frag the pinion gears. I'm making this statement based on sticky DOT street tires (not drag radials) and good track prep.

Axles are iffy... We've also had a member break an axle at 220WHP, but it broke the same time his diff did. We have no really clear picture of what gave first: diff or axle. It's possible that if the diff blew first, all the force could have shunted to the single axle for a split second and caused it to twist in half.

Or the axle could have twisted in half first, overloading the pinion gear in the opposide side of the diff and causing it to explode.

Either way, it failed.
