L99 auto, how much power you putting down with boost

Just trying to get a feel for what kind of HP people are getting to the ground, safely (so far), with the L99 and 6 speed auto...

What parameters on the transmission did you tweak to make it dependable yet put down the numbers?

I have 537rwhp on my L99 and it is very street friendly......
I have Kooks Headers,Corsa Exhaust,Magnuson Supercharger,ADM CAI,Custom Cam,etc...
I am making that power on 5lbs of boost....
With a change in pulley size to get the boost up it would do around 570rwhp.....

Do you feel comfortable that your trans is going to hold up OK?

Twin turbos are the route I'm going....Any suggestions on tuning the trans? I probably will go about 6psi. I'm chicken.

I've been told there shouldn't be any trouble with the Transmisson holding this kind of power....
