 Now you know what the code means the next question is usually what transmission do i have or what transmission do i need to look for? Most of this information was pulled from Mitsubishi CAPS.  Now you know what the code means the next question is usually what transmission do i have or what transmission do i need to look for?

-The DSM auto trans is a stout piece, but everything has its limits and anything can be broken if you try hard enough. The first limit is pressure application during shifts. Shifting with any of the full-manual methods like the [[kigglymod|Kiggly Blue Wire Mod]] wiring or a aftermarket TCU will fix this and have shifts occur at full line pressure. When shifted at full line pressure, a stock trans will live a decent life down into the 10's. A trans with a 5-friction front clutch and translab shift kit with the pressures cranked will live down into the high 8's or so. Anything quicker than this starts needing pressures cranked up higher. Kiggly has run over 300psi without problems, although he doesn'​t recommend much over 200psi for any mixed street plus racing usage.(([[https://​kigglyracing.com/​valvebody|Kiggly Racing]]))+The DSM auto trans is a stout piece, but everything has its limits and anything can be broken if you try hard enough.

 ==== Transfer Gears ==== ==== Transfer Gears ====
-Inspect yours every 20 passes or so in a high power setup. The gears should also be shot peened, Kiggly has TRE do this. If you're in the low 1.3's or so, even more frequent inspection intervals are a good idea. There is no excuse not to inspect the center diff gear in an AWD car, it is just 6 bolts to pull the cover, drain the fluid, and remove and inspect that center diff gear. The inboard side of the gear (diff housing side) is where I've seen cracking start in every single failure. Look at the roots of each gear tooth for cracks and replace all three of the drive gears if you find any cracks. The center diff gear or this corresponding gear in the FWD always cracks first, but the rest are very soon to follow. If the drive gears break, it tends to explode the case and make a gigantic, dangerous, and expensive mess.(([[https://​kigglyracing.com/​valvebody|Kiggly Racing]]))+Inspect yours every 20 passes or so in a high power setup.
