Hi,
Your truck should have a Borg Warner 5 sped
the world-class transmissions are rated at 300 lbs.- ft.

gm never used a T5 in a fullsize. yes it would have a getrag 290 / NV3500 and no way it will hold that much power. 300 would be pushing it

Hi,
Sorry about the mistake previously, I was looking at a S15.
The links may help, I hope.
