I don't know a whole lot about 1000+ hp cars, but I would think you would want a heavier duty transmission if you planned on driving a 1000 hp car down the strip. Do transmissions that are rated for 700+ hp take more hp to spin than the stock transmission (in this case, the MT82)? If so, maybe 15% is the generic rule of thumb for an "appropriate" transmission, given a certain amount of power. Forgive me if this is a stupid question.
