Transmision tuning.....

Postby Bob » Thu Oct 16, 2008 12:28 am

Might be a stupid question but how do u tune the transmision such as gear ratios on the alltrac? Is that done with a stand alone or do u need something else?

You have to pull the transmission apart and change the gears.

That's why people don't do it.

It is a lot of work and complicated. If you've never had a tranny apart, don't start with the one in your car unless it's not working now. If you want to learn about them, get the manual and find you an old used one. It will save you a lot of headaches.

No need to flame guys. Obviously a newb question, but everyone has to start somewhere.

@taner: On a manual transmisson car, the gearbox functioning is completely mechanical, so the EMS doesn't come in to play. If you want to change your gear ratios you would have to break open your gearbox and physically replace the gears with something else. An easier option is to just replace the whole gearbox with a box with closer ratios (if that's what you want) such as the RC box.

The only time your cars ecu would come into play with your gearing is if you were running an automatic.

Read up on transmissions on howstuffworks.com and it will be clearer.

No offence, but although flaming is a hot topic on here at the moment, this (assume you mean my post) is nothing like flaming.

It's just that if you wonder about ANYthing, a Google or a search on here would get you the answer in most cases. If you are looking for info, you search before you ask, right? Same goes for 'I want 500 hp, what do I need' and 'Will these Supra wheels fit', etc..

Ah well, next time I won't open my mouth. :)

I wasn't referring to your post Rene. I agree with you on the search and it's usually what I do if I have a question (thus my relatively light post count). :D I just remember when I didn't know how to change the oil on my car. Sometimes even a really basic question is a valid question.

Probably would have been better posted in the Newb section though. :smokes:
