Boost line pressure on a used trans and you will blow the clutch pistons (they get old and brittle after ~10 years). The front drum will also split as it's not designed to handle much more than stock line pressure.
I'm not sure how you will control the 5hp19 as the 4.2 was only installed with a 5hp24, electronics are a bit different.
Anyways good luck with your project, let us know how it works out.
