I have a 2006 ZX3 2.0 with an automatic trans.
It has come to the time where i would like to turbo it with the FSW Stage 2.
The issue that i am running into is trying to figure out how much boost my stock trans would be able to handle. I figured the engine could handle more but i dont know for sure.
The main reason is because i would like the car to be a little bit more fun and it is a DD.
Previously i have heard that they handle 11-12psi and buck at 14psi? Am i hearing wrong? For DD i probably would like to push between 8 and 10 but that depends on whats safe.

Currently i have 50k on it but i dont know if that would make any difference.

Thanks for any info.
Ben
It seems this thread went on to discuss the Lentech trans but lost the original question. I have the FS Stage 2 turbo kit in my ZXW (Duratec 2.0) which is a Daily Driver. You are correct in that the stock trans will manage well at 11psi. Using a boost controller (Not part of the FS Turbo Kit ) for a few 1/4 mile runs, I have turned it up to 14psi with no issue. On a daily basis I kept it at 9psi. I bought the car new and the ZXW had 100,000 on it when I put the kit in. I rebuilt the trans because I felt it was time to, with new clutch plates. I have driven the car for several years and the trans is still perfect. The moral here is, if the car will be a daily driver, you don't drive it like a rental car and keep the boost to no more than 10psi, you will be fine.

It's nice to hear that someone has actually experienced this instead of word of mouth with everything. Thanks!

Transmission Return line

I am about to flush my a/t transmission on my 2007 ford focus and want to get a hose to attach to the return port on the radiator to flush the fluid into a bucket. I was wondering what size hose diameter would work. I cant seem to find the specs anywhere.

Just unscrew the fitting from the trans, it's a metal tube but. Better than messing with the cooler to hose fittings.


It's this one, as seen from below

Buy a New car, The automatics looses to much power and are not reliable. They break easy. I would not boost it. I'm sorry. Buy a good condition ZX3 Manual.
