It made the knock sensor upset and was reducing ign timing which means losing power for almost a year before I blew the front transmission seal/bearing. No one was able to diagnose the lost of power at the time and why the ign timing was lowering this much.

Once the new transmission was installed the timing went back where it should be and gaining about 30+whp in the top end.

This second flex plate didnt survived 5000kms as I pulled the 7AT to swap in a 6MT.

In my opinion the first mod on the 7AT should be the flexplate ! then an oil cooler if doing agressive track days.


edit :
the picture from 2011 on the dyno fully tuned but with a cracked flywheel. we had no control and spend nearly a complete year to figure out what was going on ,, almost traded the Z for an EVO X.

Good Imfo: i was wondering what the symptoms would be,,,been so long since i had to replace a flexplate.
Deffinitely no loss of power or ck. engine lights.

flex plate and cooling helps but this tranny still isn't too strong. quick and hard shifting hell yea but it's strength is it's weakness if you want to go big power.

I want to look into how andy found a torque converter upgrade. haven't seen many if any online.

if you're stayin NA then a flex plate and cooling should solve any future issues.

Think the first thing you would notice is a cut in power. As it plays helll with the knock sensor. The timing would be cut back because the sensor is picking a knock.

The second thing would be hearing a new noise from under the car, or hearing it up through the floor board.

The third thing would be a car that doesn't go anywhere. That would be after the BIG BANG.

Level 10 has 2 upgrades.
Build 1 is good for 700H & 750T
Build 2 is good for 1,000H & 1,200T
Valve body & converter upgrade (parts) are good for 700H,the rest of the trans.?
