are they reliable?
Depends on the application. You might: (1) give us a little more information concerning the tranny in question, and (2) do a search.

I'll guess that your talking about an f-body t56. In that case they are underrated at 400 ft. lbs. They are strong trannies and can be made practically bullet proof if you've got the doe. Do a search and you'll find more than enough info. Also check out www.ls1tech.com and www.cz28.com as they are experts on 93-97 f-bods.

I put a T-56 out of a 97 Z/28 in mine. I have a blown big block with a narrowed 9" with 18.5 wide soft compound M/T Sprotsmans. So if anyone is gonna test how strong they are, it will be me. The car is going to be on the road soon. I've done a few burnouts in front of the house with it so far so good...lol. I'm thinking it will be fine for street use.... I hope!

Ya think this engine plus these tires will break it???

We'll see what happens.

It's a stock unit in the car now. Once I get the car on the road, and get any bugs worked out with the car, I will be looking into a bullet proof unit. Then I'll test out how pullet proof it is.
