well the instrument input wants to see instrument level input, so a preamp would usually output line level, and may clip the input. the ppod outputs are line level as it's a preamp itself.
it wont kill it, it just may not sound great while you're experimenting.
just to clarify, you obviously can't connect any power amp outputs to the pPOD, like a speaker out. you probably know this but some people get confused between preamps and power amps.

It seems to be working without any clipping, I've only notched the signal down a little (about -2db), and that was because I'm boosting some parts a bit with an eq pedal. Sounds like Suffocation or early Cannibal Corpse.
Mostly, I'm interested in an actual spec, how hot of signal can I run into it before it clips.

Well, as Rowbi said, the inputs are expecting an instrument level signal input, which is about -10 db. The Pocket POD's inputs were never tested to see at which signal level input it begins to clip. So, anything higher than that could potentially clip the input.

Alright, that answers my question, or at least tells me 'test it yourself if it's such a big deal'. xD
Looks like I have my Ampeg VH-140 model, at least until you guys add some more models of classic solid state amps.
Next version of the POD should have an Ampeg VH-140(or related), a Randall Warhead(or related) a Marshall 8080 and a Peavey Bandit(80s version, or related), just so us transistor fanboys can get our favourite amp models.

Alright, so for now my ears can give me a decent idea of how much signal is too much, and until it becomes a pressing enough concern, I don't think I'm gonna bother actually testing. Thanks everyone.
