I think it still stands but I would direct you towards Randy at FSWerks.

there are plenty of automatic turbo'd foci. they will hold up to about 300 iirc. after that you will need to talk to lentech about building the tranny.

thanks because if this still stand my dreams of a turbo focus will be crushed.
Im sure you can still use the kit but you will have to mod it to make it fit right.

No mods. Just bolt right up stock auto trans can handle 10 lbs. Any more for extended time it'll start to slip. I put down 233 and 258 tq on 11 lbs with the stock atx you deff can't get 300 out of the stock atx. Any more then 275 tq I would deff say upgrade the trans

Check out lentech automatics. They have a torque converter valve body and clutch packs u can buy as an upgrade. Weakest spot of atx is tq converter. Then valve body. Then clutchpacks. Lentech told me. Tq converter and valve body will keep you safe up to 300
