Automatic Trans Build FR-S

I have a 2013 FR-S that I just installed a Turbo in. Now I'm needing a better transmission to hold up the the HP. Is there a company out there that specializes in these transmissions? I'm not considering a manual at this time. Id rather stick to my auto for now. Thanks

Have you tried a trans cooler? Valve body mod?

I know of someone with an auto turbo currently making 300kw at the wheels and I don’t believe they’ve done any other upgrades besides those two. They’ve had the turbo for a year

No I haven't tried either of those things. Truthfully I know very little about transmissions. I know my main issue is before the engine gets warmed up if I try and gas it, I get to about 5k rpms and it will start to bounce between 5k and 6k before shifting into that next gear.

www.sspperformance.com was doing the upgrades for a while but looks like the site was refreshed or they stopped providing the service?

The stock trans holds 300whp pretty well. Once over 300 then you may want to send those guys an email. I also have a auto twin, love it lol. I'll be turbo sometime next year myself but plan to re-build the motor with lower compression for boost.

That is why I figure call them. There are other companies out there also making trans coolers but SSP was the only one I recall doing internals.
