How much power on stock 5 speed?

I just recently purchased a commemorative edition 900 and I love it. I plan to do a 3in dp and a Swedish dynamics stage 4 tune with the red series injectors. It should put me somewhere around 240hp at the crank. Would that be too much for the tranny?

I'm no expert on 900 trannys; los of people say they're made of glass. Depending on mileage and driving style, you should be okay. Rolling on the power and not hammering it through the gears probably has a lot to do with life expectancy.

I would recommend upgrading to a 9000 clutch kit to hold that extra power. If I recall correctly, a SACHS 9000 clutch safely holds 270hp. Only the 1990-1993 9000 turbo clutch will fit.
