Our automatic transmission team have experienced growing demand over the last few years to expand our hi-performance / drag application services. We are proud to have gained experience in various late model electronic transmissions, such as:
» Toyota Soarer, Supra, etc.
» Subaru 4 Speed, both current and previous models.
» Nissan Skyline, Patrol, etc.
» Mazda MX5 Turbo.
We have developed some unique modifications and set-ups including full manual shift kits and electronic modifications.
Western Suburbs Automatics carry out the following modifications on our hi-performance transmission overhauls:
» Dismantle and clean all components;
» Set pump on lathe and machine perfectly flat, flat sand case components;
» Install new clutch pack seals, case gaskets, sealing rings (teflon/chrome), seals & o'rings;
» Improve the torque capacity of the transmission by:
- installing heavy duty friction linings
- increasing the number of friction plates
- increase the band friction area
- Install new clutch pack
» Carry out valve body modifications such as installing purchased "Shift Kits", "Shift Correction Kits", custom modifications carefully developed by our staff, change accumulator springs, modify lubrication circuits.
» Flat sand the valve bodies surfaces (normal heat distorts the metal, they are rarely flat).
» Improve the torque convertor to produce stall related to engine performance (stall convertor).
» Flush the transmission cooler, check cooler flow and fit external coolers where required.
All hi-performance transmissions have synthetic oil used such as Penrite Comp, Penrite Synthetic or Castrol Trans-Max Z.
