Ok well i have the stock tranny for my 02 gt... which is, i believe a T-3650...?

Well in about a year i'm throwing a twinscrew s/c on there at about 9psi (around 400rwhp). Will my tranny and clutch handle it?

clutch not very long... tranny probably a decent amount of time. I wouldnt worry about the tranny till it breaks. But the clutch i would replace soon. Mine was slipping as soon as i put my KB on.

On a street car it'll handle well over 360 lb-ft.... as long as you're not pounding on it, dumping the clutch, mis-shifting, and bangin gears 24/7 it'll be fine.:)

When i had my car dyno tuned at springfield motorsports, i was bs'ng with Wheat...he brought up a good point...he keeps the stock clutch in his car because he considers it a fuse..since he works in a shop, he'd rather blow out a cheap clutch vs blowing up a rear end. I like his idea, but if its your dd then go ahead and upgrade.

well i'm gonna have around 400rwhp give or take... so thats around 380-400lbtq...

You're good...I've seen street cars push as high as 600whp on t45s.. and they're weaker than tr-3650. Its all about how you drive really.

well... the way to look at it is if you have the money to buy hardened gears and shift forks then do it while you have the trans out cuz when you break it you will regret not doin it while you have it down..
