TT 2003 V6 Auto?

I have a 2203 automatic V6 mustang and was just wondering if i were to try to do a TT set up if my transmission would be able to handle it?

Depends on how you drive it... if you do excessive brake stands... and have tired that hook up on the track really well... you are going to be pushing it.

How much power are you planning?

Like Brent said, it will be in how you treat it. If you drive normally, it wont be affected at all, but no one puts twins on a car to drive normally...

Just dont be too rough on it, make sure the tuner firms up your shifts and you wont neccesarily need a shift kit. I would also recommend a tranny cooler and you should be alright if you don't rip on it constantly.

if you cant afford to fix it when it breaks you shouldnt be doign a TT setup. Im not saying that it will break but its part of the reponsibility we take when we decide to mod a car or how far we go in the moding process. If you dont want to take the risk of breaking stuff and having to replace who knows what then wait until you can before going to extreme.

Well i wouldnt be beating the hell out it. It would basically be for street racing now and then, i wouldnt be going to the track and trying to do too much damage. Just an occasional kind of thing. Weekends mostly, and just normal driving the rest of the week.

Hey, thanks. It really would be for personal enjoyment and just to have some fun. I wouldnt be trying to go all out, and i doubt if id ever hit the track unless it was to check 1/4 mile or 0-60 mph times. So yeah, i would be pretty nice to my car.

You should be okay for a while then. Of course I can't guarantee anything. Make sure you have your filter changed and the tranny flushed since you likely have around 50k miles before you TT it.

I'd be sure to get a tranny cooler if you don't already have one on there

Andy does make custom built twin kits, but they are more expensive of course. The gains from a twin kit are more than from a single, but the singles are a good bit cheaper.
