Default tuning an auto

is it a pain in the *** to tune a turbo? for a low boost setup are you better off just getting a fmu? can a auto ecu even be chipped??

Certain auto ecu's can be converted to manual, add vtec etc. What's your ecu you're trying to work with?

I meant more like chipping a car with auto and leaving it auto. not chipping a auto and converting it to a manual

d16z6 and b16a3 for del sol vtec's.
Why the hell would you want to run an auto trans though? FYI, torque converters really aren't strong enough to deal with boost on a hard daily basis. Not to mention it's so much more fun to drive a manual trans.

Zex sells a torque converter for D's with 3000rpm stall. Call them up and ask how much power it should hold.
