Too much power for stock tranny?

Hey folks, I have the MPT Tune, and holy moly, it's insane. I am just wondering if anyone has had any issues with a tune creating too much torque for the stock transmission/drive shaft to handle it. Eventually I want to get the single piece aluminum or carbon fiber, but until then, just curious to hear everyones thoughts. I just cant believe how much more power I have. It feels like a frickin GT now.


2014 GT Premium, all stock...for now.

You are fine. People have way more power and still have their stock transmission.

Considering GT's have the same trans, you're fine. Your tune added MAYBE 10hp. Still more than a hundred less than a GT.

There's a 5.0 in the 8's on a stock auto I believe so don't even worry about the power being too much.

I'm going by the replacement transmission part numbers on the Ford web site. Same part numbers. Also American Muscle for gears. Pick out 3.73 (for example) gears for an automatic GT and the same gears for a V6. The gears speed and RPM's are the same. Just saying.......
