Finding a full-service shop that can handle all your transmission needs does not have to be an impossible task.

Don’t Take Chances with Your High-Performance Transmission

Day-to-day vehicle operations require routine transmission maintenance. But trusting someone to handle the maintenance, building, or installation of your performance transmission requires a level of expertise that not all shops can handle. Whether you need a transmission that can help you tow heavy loads in high-stress conditions, or perform at competitions, you can’t risk working with shops that piecemeal their service.

Custom Built Transmissions That Meet Your Specs

Understanding how to translate the performance you require from your transmission into the literal nuts and bolts that produce results is what we do. You don’t need to know how to do it, you just need to tell us what you need from your transmission. Because we have extensive vehicle expertise, we can build your ideal transmission and make sure the rest of your vehicle’s systems are compatible.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The right shop understands that better performance in heavy-duty transmissions is a direct result of expert design, building (or rebuilding), and maintenance. If your commercial or performance vehicle could benefit from improved torque-to-weight ratios and more efficient overdrive options, you need to partner with a shop that provides these auto services.

Racing Transmissions Require a Winning Team

For success in racing, you require so much to go right at the right time. Timing, teamwork, and it all has to perform seamlessly to bring home a win. You can’t leave this kind of complex operation to inexperienced shops. There is too much on the line to take chances.

Customizing your Torque Converter — Billet Torque Converters

While your factory-installed torque converter may be adequate for most of the activities you’ll require of your diesel engine, if you are regularly expecting high performance or towing ease, you want to work with experts to install a billet torque converter. The specially designed housing for a billet torque converter allows the internal lockup clutch to remain flat at all times, which will decrease the likelihood of slippage and improve performance.

Customizing your Torque Converter — Triple Disc Torque Converter

Before assuming that your transmission is the cause of any slipping, you need to have your vehicle diagnosed by experts. The torque converter that came standard in your vehicle might not be capable of handling heavy-duty work, so replacing it with a more specialized triple disc converter could give you the horsepower you need, but with better heat dispersal and less damage to your automatic transmission.
