Hey guys, i have a Chevrolet Optra 5. Im currently boosting 8.4 psi and plan to run about 18psi in the next few months. Anyone know where i could get ahold of parts or a trans shop that could help me out with beefing up my Tranny ?

I don't think you can really find a shop that can do anything unless you can tell them what is the power improvement from the engine dyno etc.. so they can match and strengthen the gearbox accordingly.

Your running that turbo through an auto tranny? Who did you get to find the work and what are they going to do to improve it?

Berz out.
