I need some information on the inner workings of the C6 transmission.
My friend was driving a heavily modified C6 with a modified reverse
pattern valve body that changed the transmission to a full manual, and
3 extra clutches in the 2nd/3rd gear clutch pack. He was just driving
down the street when the forward clutch drum blew out. I'm wondering
what the normal pressure inside a C6 forward clutch drum is, and how
high the pressure must have been for the thing to fail like that. Any
help would be appreciated.

I think in a normal transmission the pressure will vary depending on
speed, engine vacuum, etc. My guess is it runs anywhere from 200 psi
when just crusing along, up to 1000 psi during a full throttle
upshift. It might be that they have modified it and have it running
at full pressure when it shouldn't be.
