:feedback:Hi all I am new to the site,

I am looking to see what mods can be done to the R34 GTT TipTronic Box.
I know that in AUS they got certain places that do a Shift Kit upgrade in stages.

I read that the result is quicker more aggressive acceleration and the possibilaty of copeing with more than 600bhp on the RE4R01B Automatic Transmision box ( which is 400 max as standered i think). Well I been searching all day and been on the computer for about 12hours now and ain't really got much info on it.

Is there anywhere in the UK that can uprate the Transmision, i.e Abbey Motorsport. I ment to give them a ring but thought I would find out a bit more first. Any help on this subject would be great.

Many thanks

not heard much on the auto boxes on 34's. Some just junk it for a manual conversion...

if the Aussies can point you in the right direction of where/how to source the parts you need, then most decent garages should be able to do the upgrade.
sorry if this isnt much help tho :)

Tech8 used to do the shift kits for Stagea's, I don't know if it's the same box as I've never had anything to do with them, there is a thread on the other side clicky

The website is currently being built but has an option to email them here http://www.tec8ni.com/ so you could ask them I suppose.

When I had my 34 I looked into this and there is a company in Australia that specialise in upgrading the auto to cope with more power. But cant remember for the life of me who they were :-/

I looked all over and they were the only company worldwide I could find who did it. So unless you are prepared to ship your gear box over to them I would give up. Because it works out that it is cheaper to get a manual conversion done. R33 GTR gearbox fits in nicely with a few tweaks

I ain't had anyreplies yet but it is still the weekend. I managed to find these guys though www.Stillen.com which are in america.
I have mailed them to send me info as they list they do the valve body upgrade within 2 days of recieving it and send it back.

Hopefully now all I got to do is find someone to take the valve body off for me :bigthumb:
