Posted 10 September 2012 - 10:10 PM
does anyone have any idea on how much power the factory 3 speed from a 280zx can take, im just about to get the last of my turbo parts this week and my auto is in awsome condition and i realy dont want to kill it

I have destroyed one complete front diff, which is my rear stare drive, broken about 8 axles and broken drive shafts removing tree stumps and digging, wrecked the motor now but still have the same auto in it after about 7 years of hard work. So you could say they are strong.
Auto's are cheap for these as every body wants a manual, I have a spare 280c box sitting here.

But, the same applies to any auto box
Keep the fluid and filter clean, serviced regularly and make sure the transmission can dissipate the heat.
Fit a good quality cooler.

sard 550cc top feed injectors which are 2 months old
holset hx35w turbo charger
f54 turbo manifold from the states
f54 block with dished pistons, N42 head both of which where rebuilt under 30k km
engine management, Rb30e wiring, dizzy, greddy piggy back ecu in combination with rb30e ecu, or haltech e6x ecu or possibly sprint 500
front mount intercooler depending on air temps
it will be running to start with 8-12 psi and once everthing is clocked in and tuned i might try to get to 15-17 psi but im fairly certain that the n42 head will not allow this without major timing retading.

i have a very worked over one with big converter and all the race parts with big sump from kees , i ran 9.90 and 139 so i think there pretty strong , i spent 5k on this one , if any one wants it its for sale for $1500 ..
Keas autos are the bomb, this price is a steal!!!

Care to elaborate? Is it just getting the linkage to the box setup with the correct radius/throw?
yes my one has one on it and only small mods

Sounds simple, but im still not 100%. Example, if the B&M cable push/pulls 10mm during gear changes and the factory auto gear selector moves 15mm, this isnt going to work. Or are the travel amounts the same and im thinking too hard?
I understand your concern but if you think about it, B&M make this shifter to suit almost all cars, so they're pretty confident you can make it work. If the factory bracket on the auto only lets the cable travel 15mm and the B&M travels 10mm (using your example) you just lower the point that the cable attaches to the linkage on the trans to minimise the radius of the circle and thus, less travel (10mm).
I had a Pro Ratchet shifter in one of my VL Turbos and its was wicked for quick shifts while battling the wheel to keep the car straight. Not sure if I'd like it in a street car though.
