The Len Tech Automatics one I mean.
It would however probably reduce the power loss between the engine and the wheels. Depends though

HotRodWagon The turbo will eat your stock ATX up fast. If you are going FI or just 135 ft/lbs of torque...a new tranny is somewhere in your future. The hp ATX's out there from PA or Lentech will handle plenty of whp. Do the tranny first, then you can do whatever you want.

Sublime Just ask Hot Rod Wagon. He is waiting to install his turbo set-up for the ATX to be built up.

blackandgold Ummm.. unless I don't know of such an upgrade I don't think you can get any hp from a tranny but maybe I am wrong. ( You will FEEL a difference though as far as how much faster your car is) If you are going to Turbo I would build up the tranny frist cuz the stock one will be left out in the middle of the road after you take off if you have a good amount of boost.

EnigmaZV :) To turbcharge your car you'd need a new tranny. I believe the stocker can only support 130whp

inline_engine_lover you won't get hp from a tranny upgrade to my knowledge.... i dont see how you could.

Red Baron Would it just be better to get my car Turbocharged than to buy a new tranny?
