au gearbox?

i have been into 2 gearbox shops to see about getting a shift kit and one place told me that au gearboxes are shit and you cant do anything to them and said i was lucky it still works. he also said u cant put a stall converter on them because of the computer. the other shop i went to said that there is not much for them but said he could change the solanoids ($220). what have other people done to improve there sloppy au gearboxs. is it worth getting the solanoids?

Re: au gearbox?

There should be an instruction form on building your own on pretty soon.

Oh, and they are full of shit, a number of AU's I know have shift kits and the owners swear by them.

Re: au gearbox?

Shift kits and stall convertors are available.

Noddy has a Dominator in his T series.

If your looking for a proper shift kit/stall try chatting to Steve @ Redcliff dyno in Brisbane.

And as far as computer problems go Chiptorque can fix it. Recliff Dyno also have there own comp but its a bit pricey
