<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">i remember reading a thread about this somewhere and there was a slight argument going on as to what this actually meant. and if i remember correctly, it was decided that the transmission is only rated for half of that, so it would be 135... but i know absolutely nothing about engines, trannies, or just about any other mechanical thing so i could be wrongOriginally posted by Roger Eastman:
Just as a matter of interest, the Ford Focus Factory Workshop Manual states that the Focus 4F27E Automatic Transmission is designed to handle a maximum input torque after the torque converter of 270 lb.ft. From this, might one assume that problems with the automatic are probably from it being abused and not from putting too much power to it ? ?
