    Transmission rated at 1650tq, and clutch rated at 1850tq. Transmission is an automated Eaton UltraShift. My truck is turned up from 1550tq stock to 1625tq tuned currently. Can I bump it to 1700tq safely?

    Why bother? What’s the point?
    If you have the auto, because you don’t like/can’t shift, why worry about the engine hp/torque?
    The transmission is doing your work for you.

    I can sense the subliminal insults. Just looking for more pulling power without hurting the transmission.

    Do you think a 1650 rated transmission can handle 1850?

    I’ll just call Eaton with my part number. I know some transmissions can go 100 or 200 over and some can’t. Just was trying to see if any turnt up guys with experience was in here. Y’all be safe on the road. Peace..

    No manufacturer of a component would ever recommend using a component over its rated capacity. When it blows apart you would then have someone to blame, regardless if you ever intend to do so or not.

    So and so said its was OK?????
