Is the t-5 out of a 2.3 strong enough for a 400hp/400 torque 289? Or are they made of weaker parts because they're for a 4 cyl? Figured this was the appropriate forum =x

its the same, they are all about the same
the tc trans is a WC trans
but still they are all like 20 years old and all about the same strength
some people run tens on stock T5s
some people blow them up with 88hp 2.3s
its all how you shift and take care of things, but eventually too much will just destroy it

search for your answers, if you can build a "400hp 289" then you should have enought knowledge
