can a 2.5 tiptronic handle the 3.4l?


Recommended Posts

we are swapping in a 3.4l engine into a 2.5 tiptronic boxster.

i would like to know if anyone has insite whether the transmission can

handle the power, or do i need to beef up the torque converter.

And if i need to beef up the torque converter where can i get one ?

thanks for your time.

I swaped a 3.6 in a 2.7; did not had a chance to try it for too long but the tip was working ok; except that was trying to spin the wheels while changing to 2nd and 3rd. I did hit the engine after 1/2 mile so I'm not sure about relibility; I should have the car fixed today or tomorrow for more testing.(after a skid plate will be fabricated)

I think it's the same tip in 2.5 and 2.7.

Good luck,

Sergiu

thanks man i really appreciate your input, i did check out "level10.com " they do sell bulletproof torque converter and beefed up valve body for the 5hp19 tip

but since yours is holding up ok for a bit, i just might hold off. till the TC completely slip then ill get it from level10.com

Drove it to work every day for the last month with no issues. Holding the 3.6 just fine. Again my car is 2000 that is the year when they changed to the new tiptronic, but I think it,s mostly software update. Torque convertor should be similar.
