he's asking about the possibilities... not what car to buy...

Im sure if you want one custom done or want to know who might know of companies that could make one... contact Tom C from Boostology... his roladex is quite full of them Im sure

Im not, really. Just so often on hear someone races to answer a question that's misunderstood, and the thread takes off on a whole new course deviating from what the person was really asking. Just making sure before I put my 2. in.

What are the advantages of having a 6 speed automatic vs the standard 4 speed that comes in the tib? the new lexus ls has an 8-speed automatic, so what is the point of having that many extra gears?

gits and shiggles....

Unique possibly? You can’t lie that it wouldn’t be interesting to se a 6spd automatic in a tib...

There are several reasons for wanting more gears if you need me to list them I guess I will but i think the simple mechanics of the idea should serve enough purpose for any one to understand....

PS im not trying to flame....

No one has this cause the WHOLE tranny would have to be rebuilt. You cant just add a gear like a CAI or anything. RIPP cant do it, NGM cant do it, you need to talk to someone like B&M (who I have had build me a custom tranny before) or someone that actually BUILDS the tranny from the ground up.

But you are seriously looking at 10K plus

Thats just a rough estimate...

I spent 8K on a B&M 5 speed auto for my sport truck........ And thats a more common thing than a 6 speed auto in a Tib.

hmmm I think your reasoning is flawed....

The fastest Tibs here are Autos. The reason being is when you up the horsepower past a certain point the powerband doesnt match the gear ratio that is in the car. An auto shifts faster than any human and uses different variables to determine optimum shift points.... a manual cant. I have a 6 speed and love it but first gear becomes useless when you start to tweak things...

What engine work do you have so far?
