Talking Turbo Mods

Hey everyone!!! a newbie to the site.I'm looking to crank up my '03 some more.I have a Stage 1 kit and Mopar dual exhaust.Unfortunately it's an Auto and I 've been reading up that you can crank the sticks up a little higher.What else can I do to make this baby really kick it without blowing out the trans?

Change your stock TTAB pipe,Uppipe, and lower pipe to hard ones, if you haven't already done that. Allows the boost to reach the engine sooner. The stock ones usually balloon and that causes a bit of a lag. That is unless you're at WOT, then it really doesn't matter too much. There's other things like replacing your plugs and wires and modifying the stock air box. Those are just some little things that when taken together make a bit of a difference.

Keep in mind that this auto tranny (41TE) has died in the 150 hp na PT, mine included. With S1 power numbers will your auto tranny go? Hopefully not, but you go beyond S1 numbers you'd better start a "upgrade the tranny fund". I know of several people with S1+ power numbers blowing their auto tranny.
