I'm thinking about buying the TD 42 factory automatic and I was just wondering whether the auto gearboxes can handle little bit of boost? If not how extensive are the upgrades?

Thanks rhys

A lot depends on their mileage and how they've been looked after and serviced. If it's done over 250k kms it would benefit from a freshening inside.
For the boost, you have options of fairly high priced valve bodies or $140 Transgo shift kit to get the pressure up if you're mechanically capable.
They need a good big trans cooler and synthetic fluid. Temp gauge highly recommended so you keep an eye on things. Heat is the killer..

They are a tough transmission if serviced properly, nissan also used them in the 224kw twin turbo Z32.
Im pushing 300rwkw through a std one and it still works. A big trans cooler is a must as John has pointed out.
