Question Automatic???

I have got another question and I want everyone to be honest. I have an automatic in my ZX3 and I was wondering. I have heard bad bad things about the automatic screwing up under hard modifying and that is exactly what I want to do to my car but i dont know if it will take it or not. Is it worth it to even mod it? Is there anyone that has done heavy modding to a auto and if so did it work out for you? This is my daily driver and i just dont want to screw it up. thanks for everyones time in advance
Ricky

Yo, automatics can and have been built. You could put on a few mods and still be alright without transmission mods. Jitsurn has a built auto.

Last I heard Tom (1turbofocus) had a built auto, maybe you should ask him how he likes it.

automatics are on both ends of the slow and fast spectrum, but those are also 2 different kinds of autos.

mines an auto and im modding it. not much done in performance wise. all i have r an intake, t/b and a catback exhaust. i think im just gonna finish off the exhaust and then get a chip and be done with it. but who says autos arent fun to mod?? its been fun for me.


edit: just wanted to add somethin. ive been lookin at beefin up the tranny and its hella expensive. i think it would be better to go out and buy a manual.
