Default How much power will my PG drum will hold?

I just opened it. 6 steels and 5 frictions, looked perfect. How much power it will hold on a 2400lbs car?

Should hold 700-800 HP, you can buy thin Alto clutches and steels to get 7-8 in it.

most issues come from low pressure or slow apply...I had 5 frictions with over 700 hp with no issues

Thanks. I have about 80 passes on these steels and frictions and they looked fine. So I'm just going to get it back together and step on the loud pedal HARD.
