For my own reasons, I'm Autocrossing a 2007 350Z automatic. I don't have any desire to swap in a manual (although the manual rear end ratio is in the works..).
I was reading through the SP rules, and I noticed that torque converters were allowed to be replaced. I'm creating an SP roadmap for my car, and I wanted some feedback on related experience.
- Has anyone regularly autocrossed an auto in SP trim? (I hear C4 vettes preferred autos in SP trim.)
- Have you replaced the torque converter with an aftermarket unit?
- What was your experience with it in Autox? on the road?
- Did it have a measurable affect on AutoX times? MPG? anything else?
Thanks in advance.
