    4eat trans tuning

    im getting ready to buy a 2002 wrx wagon with a 4eat , im wondering if any of the major tuners do anything with the trans to firm up and quicken the shifts to help prevent the trans from failing a early painful death.
    i dont plan any major mods on the car, basically turbo back exhaust , sti injectors, cold air , turbo inlet pipe,catless up pipe , and maybe a walbro 255 pump should net me about 250whp safely
    im thinking the accessport and a stage 2 tune but i want to ensure that the trans will live safely with these mods

    You don't need injectors.

    Firming up and quickening the shifts doesn't magically prolong transmission life. But yes most aftermarket ECU reflashes will address getting the 4eat to perform better.

    i know its not a magic solution but it will help it not wear out as quickly as it would if it had the stock slow soft shifts
    i was figuring injectors just to be safe fuel wise ill be putting a wideband in the car just to monitor things anyways along with a boost guage

    thanks for the replys guys
