Re: [DML] Limits of stock transmission

I think Fred was talking about 5-speed, because the
first time he came to a DMA event I remember him
commenting on 1860 (with an auto trans), about how
turbos will work better with the auto but the boxes
used in the DMC were not well suited for it....  Which
is why I keep the boost so low on it.

I don't think there was any intent on putting the
Turbo in to an automatic, as all of the cars that were
sent to Legend (501, 502, 528, 530) were 5-speed.

Either way, I am not speaking with any authority, just
repeating what the man said.

That venturi looks a lot like the DMC, no?
