SMG box torque holding ability?

does anyone know how much torque a 6-speed SMG box can hold?
more specifically the actual gearbox, not the stock clutch assembly.
appreciate any numbers you may have. thanks!

if im not mistaken, that actual gear box is exactly the same as the six speed, the only difference with the smg is that the clutch is controlled. So if you can find the specs on the regualr six speed, you know them for the smg as well

It can handle more than what you can do to it with turbo's/superchargers. HPF turbo kits with Stg 2+ are handling it just fine so far.

thks Jeff, you are right, the 325 SMG is different than the M3's SMG...
the problem is that I do not know if the actual internal gear box is actually any different, the gear switching/pulling device is in a different place however, it is on the side of the tranny as oppsed to to tail end on the M.
