How much RWHP can the L99 auto handle...

I am looking at doing the following and want to know (I am sure others do as well) if the drivetrain will handle the HP.

I plan on a TVS2300 with 6psi, a Corsa cat back and maybe ARH long tube headers. I suspect HP to be around 525 to 550 at the rear wheels with these bolt ons. Will the drivetrain be able to handle it? It will mostly be a daily driver but once in a while it will hit the 1/4 mile.

Thats the estimate but for longevity I would drop it down to 600hp. In all honesty if its a daily driver 600hp is way more then enough, hell so is 500.

post 44 and 46

impressive to say the least that a stock auto drivetrain would handle this power increase.
