As soon as i took the turbo set up off and left it n/a with exhaust and air intake mods there car and tranny ran perfect... i dont think just "BEEFING UP" the tranny is going to help... Something needs to be done to the computer.

im no expert but thats just comming from experience..
I know there's been lots of debate in this forum on auto transmissions and I'm not looking to re-create that. It would be interesting to know though what the torque sensor limits are on the GM and ZF transmissions.
