Question I need ideas for a automatic tranny rebuild fo street performance?

I was wondering if anyone out their could tell me, what else I would have to replace in my transmission if I were to get a perfomance torqe converter for my car? What type of torque conveter should I get? I'm just trying to build a street car that will beat a honda.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If I were going to try and beat a honda, I wouldn't use a saturn. But aside from that, If I were going to race with a saturn it would have to be a stick, plus the manual transmission can handle more power.

Any performance upgrades that require the removal of the transaxle should also include the installation of a "Diff Pin Kit" from Phantom grip and perhaps the Phantom grip unit itself to eliminate the transaxles weak point (the diff pin) and to upgrade it to a limited slip set up (the Phantom Grip) Higher stall torque convertor's also generate more HEAT than stock. An aftermarket suplimental trans fluid cooler would be a smart idea if oyu want to keep things alive in the transaxle.
