Its not the HP you have to worry about, its the torque and any smaller pulley will produce a lot more torque than HP. I know its not the same for your gen by gonig from a 3.8 to a 3.4 added almost 50 lbs of torque to my car and raised it to almost 370 crank torque with the tranny gm rated at 280. As Scott from Intense stated, your going to hurt the tranny if you do ANY mods, its not if, its when. This is not to say that if you dont do any mods your tranny will live forever either...

If your listening to what Will is saying you will understand that you are saying a completely different thing. The 94/95 Supercharger with the stock pulley, makes the same boost as the 92/93 Supercharger with the stock pulley. So to get the same boost, you don't need to go to a smaller pulley, unless your other supercharger had a smaller pulley, then you would need to drop the same percentage in size to make the same boost. For instance, a 94/95 Supercharger with the same pulley as a 92/93 will make more boost than the 92/93 Supercharger, because it flows more air per revolution.

I replaced the 93 sc with a 95 sc and left the larger pulley on the 95 sc my boost was lower than it was with the 93 sc and pulley was. I had to put the smaller pulley from the 93 on the newer sc to get the sam boost as befor. So what I am saying is by putting the 95 sc & tb with the smaller 93 pulley I gained no boost it was exactly the same as befor I started the project. What I meant by my reply to will was I know it should have more boost but mine did not,

Fiero....then something'* wrong.

It'* also how you treat your tranny with the new mods. If you drive cassually and only use the power selectivly you're tranny will last a lot longer.

There is something wrong then. Did you make sure you don't have any vacuum leaks or anything? This is definately something I would look into if I were you.

Im suprised no one has suggested this....if you are woried, get a complete tranny flush & filter done. Then get the biggest tranny cooler you can mount installed. This is the first thing I did to my 99 BEFORE any other mods. I realise we have different trannys, but it will still help the longevity of your tranny even if you remain stock. I have some pics of the cooler on my SSEi site in my sig. Really easy to install!

Yes but the newer 2000+ models don't have enough room in front of the rad to mount one as large as yours.
A smaller one will do to bring the temps down 20* F or so.
You have to be careful that you don't create too much cooling.

Recommend using synthetic trani fluid as well.

INTENSE recommends against tranny coolers:

Only if you're planning to pull a trailer through the mountains. Otherwise, we recommend against it on vehicles with the 3800 FWD/4T65E drivetrain.

We have dissected more of these trannies than anyone else in the performance aftermarket, and we have yet to see a single heat-related failure. Hard parts break in these trannies, and these failures will not be prevented by a tranny cooler.

Tranny coolers add unnecessary weight and opportunities for fittings to leak. A leaking fitting can let your tranny run dry in minutes and ruin it far faster than a little heat ever could.

Our trannies are cooled by the same radiator used to cool the engine. So running a colder engine thermostat will make both your engine and your tranny run cooler.

Except that a tranny cooler can also reduce engine temps, and the biggest cause of failure in TC'* and fluid is heat. Heat breaks down the fluid, then you pay $80 for a flush. I'd rather do buy a $40 cooler, and flush every two years, rather than flush once a year.

I also have a trans temp gauge. Climbing the mountain passes around here in the summer with tranny temps of 240+? No thanks.
