Hi I have a 1.8t tiptronic I plan on getting level ten to modify the torque converter and getting a better transmission cooler. Does anyone this that the trany will hold out with these mods, if I get a gt28rs turbo. I also have a apr ecu, forge dv, evo cold air intake, chris green 3" downpipe, ghl 3", n75J, atp intercooler

Re: tiptronic atp gt28rs (jvonstro)

it'll be fine. someone was running a gt28r as part of the ATP STG 2 kit and he had zero problems. good luck http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: tiptronic atp gt28rs (jvonstro)

i realize that, but i used that as an example on a STOCK transmission. if youre going to plead with level 10 to do any tranny work for you then youll be fine. youll also get a better estimate from them, since theyre the ones beefing it up. we can only speculate on here.

I have a stage 2 gt28r and my trany went up. I have a five speed now.
be safe on how much power you put on a tiptronic, they dont call vw tranys throw away for nothing.

just some FYI, i don't think Level 10 does anything for the MKIV VW tip-trans. So call them to make sure they will work on it first before u plan too much.

Re: tiptronic atp gt28rs (jvonstro)

So you have actually talked to them and they said they could/would do this? A lot of us have contacted them in the past and they were very clear in stating they would not be offering any products/work for our transmissions. I believe the quote was "they are too complicated" That was funny to hear coming from them.
Please post specifics on what they are offering.
If this is real, it's very good news!!

Re: tiptronic atp gt28rs (Jetta_1.8Tip)

yeh i told them i have a 1.8t tiptronic and they said:
Dear Jordan,
We can modify the torque converter to with stand 300 whp and will take off anywhere from 1/2-1 second off 1/4 mile times. Now as far as the core we do need your shipped in to modify 3 days turnaround.
pts torque converter upgrade $598.

I don't know what was said all i know is i was one of the first to have the ATP stage 2 on my 2002 jetta tiptronic. As sone as i put it on my car i was haveing problems at high boost . My car would make a poping nose and the asr light would come on. Then one day i got on it and the tranny went up. I was told by a vw specialist that the tyranny's in the automatic vw's suck. I would do some Moore research on this before making a decision ( if you don't have cash to spend)

well, sometimes you get a transmission built on a friday, what can you do. in my experience, VW makes a pretty solid auto transmission. a friend had a earlier MKIV with an auto and he beat the SH!T out of that thing, and i really mean he romped on it and it worked just as good on the day he traded it in as the day he drove it off the lot.
the track record for big turbos has been good for the tip transmission, t3, gt28r have all been handled by the tip. heck, there was a guy running n20 on a 4spd auto with 12 1/4mile times.
sometimes they give out under stock boost, it all depends. all in all i think its a pretty safe thing to upgrade the turbo, ESPECIALLY if level 10 is going to modify the tq convertor. personally, i might have a box being sent out to them if what i have in the works falls through
