M50D-R1HD specs

Does anybody know or have any experience with how much torque you can put through a M50D-R1HD manual tranny? Just doing some research for a possible project.

lol............STOCK 4.0L SOHC...............i've seen an output shaft snap in half. Also seen the same on a pretty well modded Explorer Express'd 4.0 on 35's and 4.56's. I lost 2nd gear in my stock trans at 60k on a stock truck.

So basically what you are saying is that you don't know how much torque you can put through the tranny or what it is rated at. Thanks.

What we are saying is that the tranny is trash.
