Hi everyone. This question was sent to me by a customer, but I can't answer
it. Anyone here have any info for him?

"I currently own a nissan 240sx se 1995. I custom built the motor from top to
bottom. my friend with the same exact setup made 477@wheel with 22psi on 5
speed tranny. but I am only making 350@wheel at 16psi and I can't go any
higher since I am still using the stock auto tranny. It starts to slip after
16 psi. The motor could make 550@wheel. I need to know if the nissan 350z auto
tranny would bolt on to my 95 240sx if not what I need to do to get it to
work. I am trying something new and asking you for help."

Aside from some fairly optimistic power goals, does anyone have ideas as far
as strength and the tranny?
