i have an 02 LB7, im running a 4" turbo back, PPE economy on 120HP, and a PPE boost valve. That should be good for just under 450HP at the crank. I have read that shift kits like transgo or PPE can handle 450-500HP. If this is the most HP i will be running for a while would it be a good idea to just get a shift kit? Do they really hold the power or are they just going to prolong tranny damage? If i had the $$$$ id get the PPE stage V that holds 1000HP and 1500ftlbs but.....i dont have an extra $4000:eek: I know the stock allison should be ok with the power BUT to be honest im scared of breaking it:rolleyes: . I just wana play with it and not break it, or break the bank!

Be careful i limped my stock ally on 85 horse with a predator, ppe makes real power!, but also has a better backdown for shifts, sooner or later your gonna buy a upgrade for the full trans. Put in a converter and the next thing in line will let go in due time,
