    Auto trans questions

    I've got a 2002 WRX w/auto trans. I've heard to get off the line quicker, I should get a high stall torque converter. Will this work, and if so, any suggestions on where to buy? Also, would this negatively effect daily driving? If you have any questions about my car (mods, mileage, or whatever) please ask. I just want to make my car as fast as possible but keep it as reliable as possible, since it's my primary vehicle. Any info would be MUCH appreciated... Thanks-- Zac from MN

    you should have put your "mods, mileage, or whatever" in your initial post if you want relevant answers. depending on your current mods, mileage, and if your 4EAT has 60k or 260k on it will help determine what you can or should do to it. i dont know much about the auto's personally. never really considered one for this kind of car. but a higher stall converter is pretty standard for auto's in drag racing (came from the mustang world before my wrx)

    you can probably brake boost a little off the line, to build a little boost and make your 0-60 faster. but im sure thats not good for your stock torque converter.

    I high stall converter is usually a great upgrade for autos...Google would probably have the answer you are looking for a little better since many around here don't have the 4EATs.

    FYI... This is my first forum post -- ever. I didn't know any of the un-written rules... The next time I post anything, I'll try to do better. I've found out, of my own research, what I wanted to find out. Thank you to all that replied. Take care -- Zac.

    Welcome!

    The main "unwritten rule" is that research/searching is a good thing. So...you win!
