I question, how much money is spent on trick components building torque and HP into these engines to make the vehicle deliver impressive performance while retaining an unacceptable transmission?

Assuming a cost benefit evaluation, aren't you money ahead to fix the trans. problem over the power problem?
The only problem with the 930 transmission is the the gear spacing and the relatively high R&P. With the torque of these cars under boost, they really don't need another gear.

You guys with all your talk of broad flat torque curves, more starting to sound a lot like turbo-water-pumper lovers. LOL!
