Any updates you do wont be bad. You can update for higher tq settings and such. As for your tranny, yes a converter, valvebody and maybe a flex plate and you will be able to handle the higher settings. Hope this helps a bit. If any more questions let us know.

If you change the torque management you will get smoke...not sure how the "updates" are setup for the S-04, though...just took a gander..give moderate torque management w/aftermarket turboa try.

I have the s06 and loaded the wild torque management. All my smoke is gone. It runs alot better but don't count on new tunes for smoke.

hey tt433 ill back that u atleast need an input shaft. and not for the launches. that valve body shifts hard into o.d. and u will break a stock shaft very eisily if ur not very careful.

Some time in the next year when my warranty is up, and I hopefully have some more cash. When I do it, it will be done right, gauges, clutch, then power.
