I'm sure you know this already, but at 6-700 hp you won't have a tranny to worry about for long.

Not exactly true, someone on the forums has already made 698rwhp on the w58 5spd an had not had a problem with it yet. So it seems to be able to hold the power quite well.

that good to hear, ill change my mind on hp. i was going to sell my garrett t04 for a bigger turbo but now you think i should just sell off the turbo, manifold and wastegate and stick with the stock twins and build around that?
in another thread i was reading about the rps stage 5 clutch it good up to 500-590hp

From what i hear, 500+ hp and the tranny is a ticking bomb. i wouldnt be worrying about a clutch at those numbers. Its more about looking into the r154 conversion or v160 swap.
