    The only stock-style 5 speed that I'd even consider would be a Tremec TKO 600 and with 800 h.p. that one would even be questionable. Other than that look at race-style manual transmissions, Richmond, Doug Nash, Liberty, Jerico, etc.

    I own a shop, and do a lot of racing. I wouldn't recommend any of GM transmissions for that kind of torque. Look into a Richmond 5 speed, it can take it.

    Glad to help out, Good Luck!!!

    there are diverse RACERS that are making use of THE 700R4 TRANSMISSION FOR THIS application AND it rather is understanding ok. i understand which you desire a 5 speed yet those TRANSMISSION whilst equipped properly WITH RACING areas ARE BULLETPROOF.
