Well Ive finally decided to make my first post.
I dont have a Miata yet. That said, I've found a red 2003 automatic Miata I'm interested in. I really like the look of this generation Miata with the non-popup headlights.
I know that "EVERYONE" wants a 5 speed, Well I dont.
I drive crosscounty from Laurel, Ms to Seattle, Wa and back again every 2 weeks in a semi truck with 18 forward gears and 2 reverse.
I SHIFT ENOUGH GEARS AT WORK!
My question is: How much HP can the auto transmission in the Miata take.
I'd like to get around 250 to 275 HP to the ground with a turbo. I HAD an autotranny 71' 240Z that put down 316 rwhp with a turbo. It went up in flames last summer.
Ive done searches on this site with no real awnser found and GOOGLE searches come up with same results. Went to flyin Miata and didnt find anything in their FAQ, they did have a stock auto trans for sale tho.
