Hey peoples!

I've just joined up but have been a long time follower, got some great info from ya's!!!

But i have a issue of my own now! I have a EF2 Fairmont, turbo running 8psi, front mount, injectors, 500hp fuel pump, rr fuel reg.
no ecu mods yet, runs very nice without it anyway!
putting down bout 230rwkw!!

Now with that power i'm having a few box issues, slipping!!!! mainly in 2nd gear!

has anyone built one of these boxes to handle the power, or any suggestions on a different auto box???
I'm tryin to do it on a budget! so far i been able to do all thats done so far for under $3500!
any help or ideas would be much appreciated!

aha i cant help ya but can u PLEASE make a build thread?

I'm looking at turboing on the cheap too.

Also how was it getting it roadworthy and EPA in ACT? Do you guys have similar standards as NSW? Cos i've been deterred since it is an absolute b**ch to get it roadworthy in NSW.

Call Joe at Crescent Motors, 0296006229, he built a box for mine that handled 220rwkw and 680nm of torque.
It was a rerasonable price as well.
