Anyone know how much a stock 3 speed auto behind a v6 can handle? Thinking about dropping in a 400 sbc i have laying around until i gather the rest of my parts for my 6.0 LQ9 swap

Thanks,
Alex

Kinda depends on if it's a 200c or th350 to a point. Above all it will depend on the condition of the transmission. I've seen both hold up behind big blocks. Driving them easy always helps to until you get a better setup.

i havent gotten down to check which it is yet. Just thought i would throw this out to see if anyone knew before i dove into it this weekend. Hoping not much needs to be done to drop this 400 into it. Getting tired of slowing down going up hills haha

As long as the transmission is in good condition you should be fine.
