WK2 SRT transmission durability
I know you guys are tuning/modding your rides with the new 8 speed. The ZF 8R70 is rated at 700nm torque (516 ft-lb) and I'm sure some have exceeded this. With all the talk of forced induction kits on the horizon, I'm sure SRT and Hemi owners will exceed ratings considerably.
So, the question is this: Has anyone broke their tranny or noticed wear or need for repair related to high torque?
FYI, my little 3.0 diesel is supposedly putting out 531 ft-lb (721nm) with a tuner and some diesel owners are concerned about durability. I don't race...the diesel runs out of steam up top....but it does have a lot of grunt which is brutal on the drive line with the traction of 4wd. I may run WOT once a week on a launch, but that's about it. Shelby was incorrect, Torque exclusively does NOT win races...lol.
We oil burners would appreciate any input you guys have.
