Default tranny question

What tranny and clutch combo do I need to hold down 600-700HP? I was told a T-56 and a king cobra clutch but I know the T-56 is a 6 speed. I dknow little about T-56's. Since there's a 6th gear now do I need to change my gears out? How will it affect my gas mileage? Anything I should know?

Don't get the King Cobra clutch because it will not hold up well
with 600-700 rwhp.I know two guys that smoked the King Cobra clutch
with 200 rwhp.If you want a great clutch that will hold up well get
the Centerforce DFX clutch you will love it!
Also look into purchasing the D&D Performance T56 Magnum Six Speed
transmission it will hold 600-700 rwhp just fine.

How much will my mileage increase in the street and on the highway would you say? Is the centerforce clutch good still for a street and strip car. More street than strip.

The moderators here deleted my posts today for no reason at all.
The set up to get is the D&D Performance T56 Magnum six speed
transmission and the Centerforce DFX clutch.
