Performance, Brainstorming & Tuning Talk about modifications, or anything else associated with performance enhancements. Have a new idea for performance/reliability? Post it here. No idea is stupid! (please use Detailing and Appearance for cosmetic ideas)

Little off topic here. Sorry in advance.

The transmissions aren't exactly designed to handle the amount of power the engine has, and once mods are done..well..you get the point.

The stock PCM aka computer keeps the power from being put through the trans and tires spinning to save the transmission. An aftermarket PCM is a ton of fun and I'd love to do it. But like Cheetah..my trans is also higher mileage and running great.

The 1997 SSEi transmission is designed to handle right around 300hp. I doubt that the initial modifications that I listed above and the PCM addition would top that number, but with loads of miles, it'* always good to be safe. However, if you're young and stupid like me, and you like doing lots of burnouts in a high mileage car, you'll need a PCM.

Please state your source on the specs for the transmission. I'd really like to read up on the torque which is what hurts our transmissions.
