I have found 1 video of it. There was not any info on the build tho. They where running high 10's in the 1/4. Auto trans is something i wish i knew more of.

There have been a few built but they are expensive as hell. Level 10 use to make auto trans parts and builds that could hold reportedly 800hp 750tq. But they were super expensive as you can imagine. You can help your stock auto tranny out with an external cooler and keeping the HP around the 200 range or less. ECU is still a tricky one though but I think some have found some work arounds in recent years.

You can do anything you want, it just costs time and money. You could mate a K series engine to a tranny from an early 70s FWD 455 big block buick if you wanted to.

I believe EFs only require electronic input for the locking torque converter, so if you could build an EF automatic tough enough to handle the power output it would be viable, but good luck finding performance parts affordably.

Get a manually shifted trans (not ecu controlled) and its not too hard, or wire up a TCU out of an OBD1 car. I did this with an automatic OBD2 integra, it was a pain. But it works. Converted to OBD1, with an OBD1 TCU and custom wiring.

IIRC D series trannys are easier to do this with than B series. Or maybe it was the opposite. Hard to remember now!

Hope this pic works.

Sorry, but Buick didn't have a FWD 455......

Oldsmobile Tornado and the Cadillac counterpart, maybe :)

FWD and 10's, it would be a DSM or Mopar....and yes you can fit a DSM swap into a Honda :)
