can a automatic tranny take more than 200 hp

so guys im on my engine and i use my prelude as a daily driver and i want to keep it auto because its nice in traffic. but i was thinking of getting a aem short air intake,dh racing throttle body,dh racing intake manifold and then finally port and polishing the head and replacing the valves,retainers,springs and stage 2 cams.now my question is can i do all this work and have my tranny take it or will it give out on me . and is there maybe a way for me to make the triptronic tranny i have a little stronger.

Re: can a automatic tranny take more than 200 hp

yea, it'll take it. how long is the question though. just use all that money for a 5 spd swap. then do all the engine work. you'll see a bigger power gain from the swap than all that combined. plus manuals aren't that bad in traffic, you get used to it

Re: can a automatic tranny take more than 200 hp

im going to say that yes and no like everyone else said yeah it can handle that but for how long.. and thats the million dollar question. honnestly i agree with upsluder go with a 5 spd swap it is definatly the way to go check the for sale section of the fourms and see how much u can get a trans for usually fairly cheap thats the way to go

manuals in traffic arent to bad....just be sure you know how to downshift xD

me being a dumbass i use to leave it in second and start from 0 mph and goto about 55 before i shifted......apparently head gaskets dont like that....my advise to yall if you drive traffic.....DONT LEAVE IT IN ONE GEAR xD

quit wasting money on these half ass power/looks upgrades and you will have it sooner than you think.

Yes, I ignored your pm because everything you are asking about it a waist of time. Especially on an automatic.

Re: can a automatic tranny take more than 200 hp

dont get an SRI those things are ass

but yeah do the 5 speed swap before all that crap.

and once u do the 5 speed swap dont forget to add a quality header 3 inch exhaust and a tune to that setup otherwise its not gonna do a whole lot

Re: can a automatic tranny take more than 200 hp

do what these guys say.. I ve had 3 ludes 2 being auto's .. they all were low mileage and if you don't drive like a complete tool it will be fine.. my SiR is auto and that thing works hard every time i am in the drivers seat.. but I always do a lot of preventative maintenance.. there is an h22a lude auto with a Jackson S/c on it and that seems to be holding up just fine.. but 5spd is where the reliability is
