Default 41TE torque rating

I understand that the 1 in 41TE represents the torque rating, but I am trying to find out what torque value it represents.

On the new transmissions (e.g. 41TE), the numbers and letters actually
mean something:

4 amount of forward gears
1 the torque rating for the trans (on a 1-8 scale 1 lowest 8 strongest)
t or r transaxle or rear wheel drive
e or h electronic or hydraulic

What that means in quantifiable numbers, I don't know. However, having had experience with these trans during there infancy of the early 90's, I'd say it's hit or miss. Although I do know of a gentleman who built a 400hp Nitrous fed Daytona that used the A-604 (41TE forerunner) to get power to the ground. It took him a couple years to break his tranny. I would say that any reasonable power the majority of us are dealing with will be fine. Now, if you are going for a full AGP T3/T4 swap, larger injectors, Apexi SAFC, 3" O2 housing, cat and exhaust, and other little goodies I don't want to go into, than you may want to build it up a bit or switch to a 5 speed.

Just my 0.02....

Its amazing that transmission lasted that long with that much HP. I called the Chrysler technical support and they couldn't figure out what the torque rating was either.

There's also a 42LE transaxle, what does the L stand for?

42LE

2 - torque rating
L - longitudinal mounting
E - Electronic Control

And before you ask...

47TE
4 - speed
7 - Torque Rating
T - Transverse mounting
E - Electronic Control

I found out that there are two different types of differentials that go into these transmissions. Anybody know which one is in the PT and why they need two different types of differentials?
