I guess I'll revive this old thread with my 2 cents. I also have an 07 FX2 5.4. I put a supercharger on it, and as of now the rest of the drive train is stock. I gotta say I'm not easy on the gas pedal. I do burnouts all the time and everything is fine. Besides, if something breaks that's just God's way of telling you it's time to upgrade to performance parts!!!

If you're going to do burnouts on a regular basis, install a line-lock. It will be easier on the transmission, rear end, driveshaft and u-joints.

Of course burnouts are not "healthy" for your truck. Engine or tires. But if you can do something like this it's totally worth it

i'm not asking for sarcasm, i'm just asking if a stock tranny can handle it or if it's just going to damage it with a few seconds of burnouts once or twice.

How old are you? Doing a burnout OBVIOUSLY won't harm the transmission unless you do a neutral drop or power brake it until parts blow through the oil pan.

Seriously...use the powerbrake method, not the neutral drop method.

Jim

Even a bullet proof Torqueflite 727 would probably be damaged doing that!!!!! I did a neutral drop in a 1976 Plymouth Fury and that was it!
