Default Tranny question

how much additions can we do to our motors before we need to think of upgrading the tranny? I mean i am minimal right now but am going to be getting pem'* and rockers this summer then maybe a high volecity Tb. The tranny should be fine right?

My tranny went at 90k, after i beat the sh!* out of it for 2 years and 20k. (I was really mean to my car when i started driving. )
If you don't have a lead foot you should be alright.
How many miles do you have on your tranny?

Some cars will go a long time with abuse before the tranny craps out, others wont last a week even with no abuse. When it goes it goes, theres almost no predicting it, look at Rogue'* car. I think all he'* done is LSD and torque converter(the most likely culprits for a failed trans) and he makes gobs of power.

If you have a 95-96 bonne with the series 2 and the 4T60, could you swap in a 4T65 if the 4T60 decides to crap out?
