an idea just popped into my head. some of you guys might possibly be running around with automatic transmissions. well unfortunately i've never owned one (and don't intend to) and so therefore i have absolutely no knowledge of the dsm automatic for the 2.0 nt or any other for that matter. if you have any questions regarding it i'd try and take it up with someone in the transmission forum. if you do get an answer let me know and i'll post it over here so far this is the only thread i've found: Will n/a auto tranny hold up with turbo mod? although i'll keep looking myself.
