They were pretty helpful Looks like I may neeed to start from scratch with rebuilt box and re-tune. I din't expect to be pissing $5k up against the wall on a 3yr old car.

Yeah custom tune, injectors, cat converter, air box.

Argument is invalid

Don't want to break stuff don't mod the car. How hard is it?

There's no argument. Plenty of ZF's failing without any mod's. Anyway, I didn't raise this topic to generate ' I told you so's'

Appreciate all feedback.

Mines doing the same I have 34000kms with same mods but with valve springs n it's getting replaced under warrenty

Replaced under warranty by who? Mod's void warranty.

Mine is out of warranty anyway. is an 09 Model with 70,000 k on it.

Hi Essgee & thanks for your call

the problem is once a box starts to slip & depending on how long you let it go for then the damage is done !!... if the steels get hot spotted just like a flywheel with a manual clutch the next time you give it a hard time the friction can not get a full contact on the metal plate then they start to warp, adding a cooler after the fact is like saying what about if I replace the oil in it every week & drive it sedately, & yeah it may prolong it if you do drive it sedately but we dont !! that why I say take it back & get all of the ZF & normal trans changes reverted back to std & drive it for a week the megatronic will relearn & if your lucky enough, you could have saved your box but if it still slips & flairs its to late.

we are build a ZF from a customer from Queensland I'll take pics of what stuffed fiction & steels look like

thanks

joe

I don't think I've seen a ZF on an unmodified car fail other than the ZF Milkshake which is a design flaw rather than this which is excess wear and tear above what the box was designed for.

I think there's a company in WA that do really good ZF rebuilds but I can't think of the name. Their cost includes freight there and back from memory.

I've had my transmission serviced and re-tuned by Autotech Engineering in Sydney. I've not experienced a more professional and customer focused service provider in my life. These guys not only know their stuff but are dedicated to their work in every way.

Spiro kept me posted every step of the way, he asked my approval for the most minor job before proceeding and explained the process and reason for what he was recommending.

Check out their web site and testimonials, they're spot on.

So in a nutshell, transmission is performing better than new and box didn't have to be rebuilt.
