I started running a Transgo this year. In the past it was a BAD idea in conjunction with a co-pilot but now due to the new billet P2 and hub all is well!

From your mods in your sig you would or will be very happy with it!

Depends on your budget. The Transgo is a very cheap upgrade which will handle your current mods. You would be safe with a transgo to the 450-500 RWHP mark.

Now are you talking Transgo or Transgo Jr? Is there or what is the difference? Can I install it myself or a tranny shop? I'm in Calgary so hard to find a good shop.

Go to Suncoast website and check them out. I personally would go with the Transgo. If you are in need of a good tranny shop with great service and prices call Jamie at J and R Automotive in Lloydminster. Tell him I sent ya.

Jamie also has the Transgo in stock I believe as well.

I know its a bit of a trip but WELL worth it! Jamie built my last trans which to date has held up to 1200 RWHP so far. The real test will be this spring when I run the BIG tune!

So how much HP can that hold. I am thinking of going big or at least until engine internals need upgrading.
