Default How Much Is To Much?

I need to know what the max horses a 1994 bravo 1 drive can handle. Looking to repower but I don't want to overload my drive......Thanks.

Its always been my understanding that a Bravo 1 is good till about 500 horses. At that point, your gonna granade it. But it also depends on how you drive it. If you baby it, you can get away with more hp than if you are gonna hammer it hard.

A 24 outlaw.....your good to the low 500's if you’re easy. You can do little stuff to help like run a machined billet top cap w/ shower and some better bearings……but I don’t think that was the point of the question.
