I have no idea. The TKO is supposed to be able to handle 600 ft/lbs of torque comfortably, and in most of our cars you can't begin to put that sort of strength through the drive train without the tires busting loose way before that. The only suggestion I would have is when the transmission is out of the car to triple check the bell housing alignment. But you know, in years past (especially when we were youngsters) we used to just slap any old bell housing on any old block and then align it with a broom stick and we never broke anything. We used to wear clutches out in a couple of thousand miles, but I don't remember ever breaking anything.
