Strong enough to hold up to a stock L67 driven moderately. Anyone willing to try can destroy their trans in a few hours.

Default Tranny

I wouldn't dream of towing anything with my SSEi. I was just wondering what makes a heavy duty transmission heavy duty.

Stronger output shaft and sun gears.

My trans left me at 125k with burnt 4th clutch and 3rd sprag, both were worn over time and let go together.

LOL, that'* the truth, The tranny will hold up Ok even somewhat modded, just avoid burnouts and slicks, that'* how you break things.
