How much can an Auto take and can you remap the AT for faster gear changes?

I have an Auto Roadster and thinking about getting the Stillen Supercharger kit. How much power or torque can the AT take? And is the AT electronically controlled in such

Its a daily driver so mostly run in Auto mode, but for spirited driving (fast road) put it into Manila mode and use the paddles

1.The stock Stillen kit is friendly to our auto
2.Longevity of the tranny depends mostly on your driving style
3.I'd not suggest having over 400wtq in ft-lbs if your primary concern is its longevity.
4.Line pressure can be adjusted by tuner by few extent in order to make it shifts more smoothly (but it has limits. it will fail if you go overboard)
5.Take it easy for the 5-7th gears
6.Don't trust so-called performance rebuilds

Just my two cents (a man who has blown it four times since it was boosted).

The 370Z has been around, with no substantial changes, since 2009. This site has been around just as long. There aren't many questions about the 370Z that haven't already been answered on this site (and other 370Z-related sites).
All the major web search engines will allow you to limit your search to a specific web site by adding "site:somesite.com" to your search string. Eg, 7AT tuning site:the370z.com.


I have no knowledge of a 300ZX UK Club, so I'm not sure what that remark was supposed to mean. If it means calling people out for being too lazy to do a simple search, then, yeah, that's me.

FWIW, if you plan on doing any work on your Z, the FSM (link in my sig) is a valuable resource.

The UK 300 ZX scene was ... F off you c***s not a friendly environment

Forums are difficult to search I used to belong to the biggest Nissan forum on the planet

From my experience tuning many customers boosted vehicles with ecutek, I find it critical that the actual torque reported by the ECU matches actual torque as closely as possible. You will find transmission failures can often occur if the line pressure is either too high, or too low for the torque being delivered. Too high reported torque causes harsh engagement while too low reported torque will cause excessive slip.

Just trying to help you out - use search and you will find more than one opinion on the subjects.
I may growl but I seldom bite.

Quite easy, actually. In addition to the site: parameter, you can also narrow your search using the + , ~, and - modifiers (and others). Most (if not all) web search engines will have a link on their search page to instructions. More "How to Effectively Search" pages on The Intertubes than you can shake a stick at.
