    Automatic gearbox limits

    i'm looking at some bolt on performance upgrades and mapping etc but before i buy anything i thought i'd do a check to see how much power the auto box is good for. I did a search on here and google but nothing came up for me. Its a 1998 non tiptronic 4-speed auto

    I got the 4 speed auto in my A4 and often wondered how much power it could take.

    I reckon your first bolt on performance upgrade is a 6 speed manual box

    Will be interesting to see the results of your experiment though mate

    Get your gear box serviced if its not been done before.

    I got mine done about a year and go and made a huge difference to its performance.

    Cheers Scott i'll bare that in mind. The gearbox itself is changing gears and pulling away very smoothly at the moment but a service never hurts
