Auto box max power? Ugrades available?

14 posts in this topic

Have an auto glanza in the process of being fully forged, would like it to run a comfy 240ish bhp, just worried about the box, anyone with big power autos? Torque converter upgrade? I’m going to install a transmission cooler, any help would be great thanks

Yeah I'd be quite interested in this. 

 

I've never been in an Starlet turbo auto, and wouldn't buy an auto personally.

My friend has a mercedes auto and that's tuned (maybe 500bhp) and it's SAVAGE! Although a lot of work went into it to enable to box to handle said power.

I've heard good things about the Starlet Turbo Auto's. Would love to be taken out in one one day lol. I'd be interested in seeing what the limit is on those boxes.

iamlegend ran a forged motor on an auto

no issues as far as i remeber

 

I know Tuning Developments mapped it for him, so could always give them a call

Was gonna install a flappy paddle kit to it as well, just didn’t know if the gearbox is safe to run this power consistently, the engine will but well there’s only 1 way to find out

id be interested to see how this works out, picked up a glanza auto last week to use as a daily and i find it awfully slow compared to manual GT's I've owned previously, im weighing up the options of tuning vs manual conversion.

So no big power auto starlets out there running reliably? Must be someone on this forum surely

You could make a fair 220hp on a stock engine td04l no box upgrades

to the best of my knowledge, 200/220bhp is the most i remember being made on an auto ep82

that was a long time ago and the member's name slips my mind----you would need to be diligent with tranny oil changes and possibly a cooler would help

found it----YBY was the name

Could always send a spare auto box of to a specialist and see what they can do internally.
