: 3 bolt and 4 bolt rear hp limits!

12-17-2002, 03:03 PM
I have a question on how much whp can a 3 bolt handle vs 4 bolt rear end without hard launches in a awd (of course). My 90 eclipse is a 3 bolt using a 2600 lb ACT clutch. I like to know how much power it can handle before I get any future mods that will cause my rear end to break.Any info will help. Thanks!:rolleyes:

You are looking at over 400 hp to need a 4 bolt and it will take quite a bit to get to 400 hp. Later

3 bolts have been taken to the low 12 second times, for the 1/4 mile. (Nate Pharr GVR4 12.4 on 3bolt)
