yes it can...i've heard people prefer the 3.55. The clutch is the piece you'd have to upgrade first. As for amount of power I don't know....but it can definitely handle the amount of power a stock srt swap can put out

my 3.55 swapped srt is handling great. change to a pt clutch and it'll do fine. or just dont run tons of boost and you'll never have traumatic issues.
It's not the fall that hurts, it's the sudden stop at the bottom!

too much to get an srt trans to work right, but a well built 3.55 1st gen trans can handle it.

3.55HD transmissions should be really easy to find in a junkyard from a 2nd gen neon.
