Lightbulb Building a Turbo Automatic ZX3

I am building a turbo automatic, I jus recently got a 2000 ZX3 about a month ago and i am starting to build this car. I know its an auto but i want to do something really different with my car, but i can find any companies that make anything for my automatic. I know i can get some bolt ons but i need to find a place that can help me with my trans aka shift kits, better automatic trans, torque converter and so on......

If anybody knows about any companies let me know

Thanks

you should check these websites for ATX mod parts:

www.mcnewsautomotive.com

www.performanceautomatics.com

www.lentech.com

They work with ATX tranny mods. Hope these help and good luck with your project.

You may have more luck going with a supercharger, it seems there are more options for the Focus going with a supercharger.

Leadfoot/S2 listed his car in the Vehicle for Sale section & he has a charged Zetec w/auto trans that he had beefed up, you might want to hook up with him & maybe even buy his car (sounds like an awesome set-up for a very good price) might save you a lot of Blood, Sweat & Tears.
