Transmission concerns

after having done significant mods to my Q60 ( now ~485 rwhp) i’m a little
concerned about the transmission. Everything has to work in harmony and
this tranny is not designed for this. I know that heat and pressure are the
forces that stress components. Until i can get this tranny fixed/fortified by
someplace like level 10 and do some real valve and other hardware fixes,
does anyone think a simple, partial solution could be a generic aluminum
finned fluid cooler. Any significant temp control for the transmission has to
help, right? I am not going to be pushing this hard. But I would like to be able
to do the occasional wide open 1/4 mi.
How would y’all handle your tranny with this rwhp and ~545 rwfp?
I will be installing the AMS CF drive shaft and LSD( when it’s out) if it matters.

There's a member here that modified and raced his Q60 at a drag strip and posted his times. I'd do a search and reach out to him.

What would y’all do to this transmission if you want to support 485 rwhp? Nothing? **** can it and
get a whole new one? Modify it (in what way)? I really need some expertise that I don’t possess.

@Mikesheree where did you net out with this? The reason I ask is because I recently reached out to AMS regarding legit Alpha packages for our platform. Ty mentioned staged packages coming soon, traditional style like Stage 1, 2 and 3 vs. Alpha X, Y & Z with higher HP official "Alpha" packages coming later. This surprised me because I'm not aware of AMS ever doing COBB-like stages. In any case, I can't help but wonder when someone is going to release a buttoned up tranny solution for us. To date we've got:

- Forged internals (Manley)
- Fueling squared (AMS & Nostrum)
- Shafts & LSD (Z1, AMS)
- Cooling (AMS)
- Transmission (Some progress via Level 10 although they don't publish support for it)
- Stock Turbo Upgrades (R/T Tuning and soon Pure Turbos)
- Manifold for aftermarket turbo upgrades (I have to believe AMS is running at least a printed prototype by now)
- Tuning (Everyone)

Once the manifold design is completed we should see some 700hp and higher VR30s soon after. I think 2019 is going to be the year the VR30 ascends as a legendary motor. So anyhow, were you able to uncover any progress or updates outside of what's available on the interwebs?

your going off the wrong number...you need to go off wtq. Torque kills transmissions, but with that said no one knows the limits of the stock transmission yet since no one has blown one up yet. With that said, i'm sure if you dont do a lot of launches the car, you will be fine. Keep in mind, yes you dynoed 545wtq but your not going to be at that power level most of the time driving around town daily driving.

485whp?! What the heck are you running?? What psi are you tuned at?? I'm at 18.5psi and just about every perf mod except for the HPFP and I'm only at 403!

Nice... 93 octane netted me 437 WHP & 502 WTQ on a Dynojet AWD dyno.
