I couldnt figure what section to put this in other then the GenIII section. Mod/admin can move this thread if needed.

I need to know how much torque a 3.55 rear end from a 4.7L v8 can take? also after re-reading the hemi-swap, did a strong enough front axle ever get found? since im looking at going to a 4x4 from 2x4/4x2. engine will be putting out close to 1000 FT. LBS of torque.

What size ring gear is it? 8.25, 8.75, 9.25?

How do you plan on getting to 1000 ft. lbs. of torque?

if i recall the build sheet correctly i think it is a 8.25, though i cant find the build sheet right now.

well i thinking of a EV conversion with possibly using this motor. would be a direct drive system so i would not need a transmission in the mix, would be directly mounted to the rearend.

An 8.25 won't handle that kind of immediate torque. The c-clip will break.

You'll need to go to an 8.75 or 9.25 to be able to beef it up enough to handle that kind of output.
