Since my 5 year factory just expired. I was going to start modding. For those running a 2014 to 2016 Forte Koup or Forte5 auto (non dct). Has anyone crossed the threshold of where it is too much power for the auto tranny to handle reliably as a daily?

What do you think that whp reliability threshold is ? 250whp ?

Thanks.

OEM is 200 HP, maybe 180 WHP. I had tune that pushed maybe another 20 or so.
I really used it a lot and never had a problem. Yes. I had the car for only 22k miles and tune was for about 12k.

Per design I cannot tell you how much it can handle. Maybe other cars were using it...

Is your goal to hit 250whp? If so, that should be easily obtainable. I'm pretty sure there are a number of VT's and Forte's running around with that much power goin through their auto's. I haven't heard of anyone's auto trans goin out. The DCT will start to slip around 275-280 whp from what I have read. The auto can hold more than that.
