I tried the search already, but found nothing conclusive as to the specifics of my question.

Those that I found with broke M6 tranny's I would agree are in the vast minority. I have also heard from a guy who literally drove his stock Camaro 24 miles from the dealer and the rear end broke on him.

These are not what I would expect to be regular occurances, or anything I'd worry about especially for a stock, or even lightly modified new Camaro. However thats not what I am talking about.

I am wanting to know how much RWHP is too much, on the more highly modified end. Specifically, if I get a new Camaro, I want to boost it. I know what I need to do to the LS3 to make it boost friendly. That is not really a big deal. However there are no real aftermarket trannys and rears available yet for the 5th gen, and I need to know if they will be able to withstand the power level I am looking for (750-800 RWHP).

Anyone know how much abuse they can really take on a consistant basis before something is expected to break?
1995 Z28, 383 LT1, D1SC, FMIC, ect. 614RWHP
1998 Formula WS6, TSP 5.3 heads, MS3, ect. 441 RWHP
