My personal experience is that the 915 can live at 300-350 ft/lb of torque if you do not beat on it.
By beat on it I mean drag race starts, speed shifting, and any other type of shocking.
When you go past 350 ft/lb of torque the tranny's weak spots become vulnerable to rappid aging.
400-450 ft/lb is a time bomb that you can destroy at will.
