Have you taken her to a reputable trnsmission shop yet? I have had many trannies upgraded and beefed up at AAMCO transmission shop, I know that they have locations all up and down the east coast. You might look there.
And Welcome to the forum, hope you like it here, I hve enjoyed it alot.

What will they do to the MTX to make it handle more torque?

If you take it to a tranny shop they should tell you what they can do exactly. I had them rebuild me a 700R4(Chey tranny) and they told me exactly what they planned on doing to it, they even were going to put something in it that i had already decided I did not want and they did not put it on because I told them prior because they asked me if this was going to be acceptable before they did the work. while they were puting it in they had to buy some extra parts that they did not anticipate having to buy to begin with. i thought that they would charge me extra for these parts, but to my suprise the price that they set before they did the work is only what they charged me. I was very pleased. Hope this helped.

There's nothing wrong with the tranny now,I'm not looking for a rebuild. I'm planning on adding nitrous system and don't think the current tranny will handle the additional torque.
