highmark So after reviving some old threads to gain some new valued knowledge/updates it appears there isn't much still for the A/T. We know it's based on the Nissan platform and there isn't a TCU tuning solution.

With that said here is some information I found valuable which was buried pages deep spread across multiple categories and threads.

----------------------------------------------------------------------_

I would imagine the number one reason they didn't put this transmission in the 3.8 is because they wanted a 6 speed to compete with the G37 coupe (7 speed auto now though so I guess Hyundai will have to play catch up again) and give you something (one more gear) for all the extra money you pay over the 2.0T.
Same reason the 2.0T doesn't make 275 HP stock (too close to the 306 HP V6).

We are proud to announce the release of new parts for the RE5RO5A:

Bushing Kit
Technical - Repair Manual
Technicians Diagnostic Guide

Bushing kit comes with two center sun gear, one pump, input and extension housing bushings.

This automatic transmission is used in:
Infinity
FX35
FX45
G35
M35
M45
Q45
QX56

Kia (A5SR1 / A5SR2)
Sorento

Nissan
350Z
Armada
Frontier
Pathfinder
Terrano
Titan
Xterra XE

I talked with Dave at L10 and he recommends on the A/T to do the TQ and Valve Body which should strengthen things and allow the internal parts to remain cooler thus leading/allowing to more power. He said to leave the TCU how it is for now.

highmark After about 500 miles on this kit there appears to be no major issues and the car is running very smooth. BTR did a fantastic job tuning.

I plan on hitting the dyno again in the next few weeks once the temps rise a bit again in Chicago. I'm hoping to hit better than 340whp; but we'll see.

Next things on the list to start looking at:

ECU options - how far do I take the BTR ECU before going to Haltech or another solution. Looking at my local tuning options if I don't stay with BTR.

TCU options - probably the newest item in my research. Can't find much; talking to L10 and some local performance shops. Any information if your auto would be greatly appreciated.

Shift Kit options (valve body upgrade) - researching this; not sure if it's needed but understand the benefits.

highmark A few more images to update the build. We added an MBC to remove the stock solenoids. I left the stock solenoids connected to the ECU for now just to be sure I don't trip any codes. Talking with BTR to get a tune update so I can completely remove the solenoids.

MBC set at 19PSI.





For those of you that asked what additional parts we had to buy with the kit here you are. We plan on putting a full list together; but as we speak the build isn't done; more to come. This weekend we are doing the cooling lines.



Link to actual image where it's can be read easier.

highmark PRW Stage 4
Evo X Injectors
DW Fuel Pump
Stock Solenoid (only made this much due to solenoid failure) MBC on its way.

We have also changed the way we had the waste gate and bov recirc'd. We removed those T-s on the cold side and left the waste gate to the atmosphere.

dwjp90 I'm pretty sure you can.

DW300 fuel pump came in.

Can I install without a re-tune?

highmark Just wanted to update based on the progress so far, nothing cool at this time.

PRW Stage 4 - Completed purchase. PRW states 1 week for assembly.
Evo X Injectors - Completed purchase.
Exceldyne Fuel Feed Line - Complete purchase.
Deatschwerks DW300 Fuel Pump - Completed purchase.

If all goes well by the end of March I'll start looking at the install based on the April BTR tuning event.

I'll post pictures of the parts as I get them.

No worries, I ended up changing them anyways. Imageshack changed there site so I had to learn how to resize the images. Hopefully this is better.
