    2001 Saturn L 300 transmission question

    Okay thank you, yeah the transmission is rated for 205 ft-lbs of torque I believe and the Saturn itself puts out about 190. So I need something that can handle just more than the stock! You think I just need a reinforced clutch? Or should I look into something more? If I get a turbo instead of...

    2001 Saturn L 300 transmission question

    Hello my name is Jeff and I have a few questions about the 4t45E transmission. I am under the impression that the only reason I cannot soup up my saturn is because of the transmission limitation! I was told elsewhere that there are ways to beef up the tranny a bit and allow it to handle more...

    2001 Saturn L300 Aftermarket Swap?

    Well thank you for the information! Idk why they dust just give the L300 a 5-speed. It would have solved so many heartaches for us :\ I guess I'll probably stick to my sound system then and just lower/dynamat my ride. .. :] when I win the lotto tho.. Haha

    2006 350z Possible Fantasy Come True!

    Ok cool, thanks a ton. I've just been concerned about that because I looked into tricking out my Saturn for giggles only to find out that the transmission can only handle about 20 more pounds of torque haha. They kind of messed up on that one! Understand you totally buddy but just a quick...

    2006 350z Possible Fantasy Come True!

    Thanks guys. From what I understand a turbo is less strain on the engine as far as daily driving goes so long as I don't smash around town... But a supercharger provides exponential amounts of boost as well as an easier install... Does anyone know if the stock transmission can handle boost? Or...
