Default TCI 5r55s 1,200 hp ?

As topic says, TCI rates their 5R55s up to 1,200 hp ?

If so damn I want one. LOL.

Like the StreetFighter units, these are equipped with our 100% tested, Manual/Automatic valve body. That means that most units allow you to manually shift the vehicle into each gear change or, by placing it in the drive position, remain fully automatic. In either mode, you get a racetrack shift that bangs through the gears and shaves time off your ET's. When you use the manual gear selection feature, the Super StreetFighter upshifts and downshifts right when you move the lever, with no lag or governor override.
FTW!

I manually shift mine quite often and I can tell that sometimes it doesn't like it when I do it. A new 5R55S that's made to shift manually or use in D is a WIN for me.

I'm also sort of surprised about the price. I would have expected it to cost a lot more.

What I need now are some customer reviews. *looks at Mex*

I am calling the BS flag on this tranny. Aint gonna happen, no way, no how.
Level 10 had their 5R55S trans out in June of 2006. Why does it take TCI so long to bring this product to market?

I thought one of the problems with our transmissions was in the size/machineing of a shaft inside, I remember reading about some body in cal. that made a beefed up version for the 5r55 but I never heard any more about it. Are the clutches the weak spot? What HP are you guys running that causes problems with these autos?
Description said 1200 hp then it reads NA up to 600 hp what gives?
The Flag must wave here!!!!

It doesn't mention anything about a better input shaft.
It also says it's intended for NA vehicles.

I'd rather get my transmission built at Larry's.
