Cool 22e

Remember that the T-56 trans in the Extreme is the 500hp max (per Tremec) out of the last Pontiac GTO and the factory clutch is a little weaker than that to protect the gearbox during the 1 yr warranty.

So my 600 HP UBB Extreme gearbox can't support it…? I've changed the clutch and the flywheel to a McLeod who can support it.

i believe the Saleen Extreme had a SPEC Stage 3+ clutch in them, good for 875ftlbs of torque.
