Auto Trannies

Just to add my .02 to Eric's -

If you have an automatic, don't get too carried away on adding boost 
or any other mods which will push more horses thru that tranny.  When 
mine failed ($1500 for a rebuild, and far the cheapest option at 
that!!).... I learned that automatic seal failures are very typical 
on the 5K/100/200 series; note that these are all the larger bodied 
cars??  And the turbo just adds to the load.

My advice: if you have an automatic, make NO mods to increase power.  
Drive it the way Audi designed it and save yourself some big $$$.
