HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin

944 Turbo s Transaxle

Post  tiger2 on Wed Apr 13, 2011 9:01 pm

Is it worth trying to find a TurboS Transaxle for an LS1 car or will the Turbo transaxle with LSD work fine?

You'll pay a premium for the Turbo S trans. I'm not sure it's worth the additional cash. If you can find a "regular" turbo trans that has an LSD and a cooler I'm sure it'll be fine.

Turbo s Transaxle

Post  tiger2 on Thu Apr 14, 2011 9:10 am

Thanks, read somewhere the Turbo S trans. had a reinforced case and hardened 1St & 2nd gear. Do you know if the regular turbo trans has the hardened gears?

All transmission gears are hardened to some degree. IIRC the S trans has a different material for the main shaft, and therefore different heat treat and mechanical properties.

Until someone comes up with some data proving some improvement, I will not pay a premium for an S trans.

The turbo S transmissions do have a hardened shaft and 1 and 2 gears. Not sure that's worth the price premium though.

Turbo's have a hardened shaft and 1st gear. The main difference is the hardened 2nd gear. Power shifting a V8 into 2nd, w/o the hardend gear is probably not a good thing.
