What up? I know this may be similar to a somewhat recent post, but i feel like i am asking somewhat of a different question. Is it possible to make an Auto GA16 fast?

possible yes costly yes. you can bolt the turbo kits and all that up to it but there is a problem with burning up the transmission you would have to get it rebuilt to hold that power. i havent looked too mutch into it but i was reading a thread about a guy talking about turboing his automatic and its looking like a NAY till he gets it rebuilt. but you can do the basic boltons that are out there and get a respectible gain out of it
Enough to beat like a prelude with an engine swap(not sure what engine) and other mods?

eh not sure on that part. i was told atleast my 5speed ga16de stock vs f22e i think it is. the 2.2L sohc that it would be neck and neck. but i never did find out blew up my motor. i do kno that between atuomatic and standard the standards have a pretty good advantage over the automatic due to the gear ratio my guess
ya i was wondering about shifting up from 1 to 2 to drive. ive done it before with a stock engine and the only advantage that i felt was i could feel boost at like 5 or 6 grand. Would that do anything?

first of i hope your running this prelude at the track. and 2nd while its in drive its should shift most gears about 6250 wich is where my auto shifted. but with the vtc system on our cars if your rpm goes too high you start losing power i shift right at 6250 so by time i shift into another gear its still pulling stong. the only thing putting it in drive 1 and 2 is holding it in that gear so the rpm are higher. i use to do it so it would sound like i had a standard lol SHUTUP EVERYONE yall probably did it too lol
LOL I havent raced him yet but there is not a track in this town and the one in a-town isnt open yet, so yes it prolly would be on the street lol

Yes 5 speed is better but i dont think you are giving the auto ga tranny any credit. It took about 3 months on stock H.S. boost to blow your auto tranny, more or less. I was at a 50 shot and now at a 75 shot always racing and spraying from a dig. My auto clutch packs are not even sliping yet and ive been on bottle for almost a year now. The only problem ive had has been axels and that solved now do to the change in mounts. i would recomend a tranny cooler for anything thats not N/A

No neutral drops ever!

and when racing i always shift at redline and and always upshift and no adverce affects.
Im not an idiot lol i know that it is bad to drop it from neutral to drive
