You mean it's still holding up to the stock motor that's better then mine did. , but no I'd say. A V-8 is a little much for the poor little T-5 in Jeeps.

T-5 is rated at 310ft lbs. It won't last behind a midly built 350 for any length of time. Same reason Chevrolet wouldn't put the T-5 in the Camero back in the 80's.

If you already know the answer, why waste the time and bandwidth to ask here? J/K
Definitly think about a new tranny with your engine swap.

I toasted two of them behind a stock 258, I think that as soon as you let out the clutch on a small block it will grenade.
