Mild Street Performance - $1650.00 + $500.00 Core Charge
consider our Level One Transmission to be a properly built transmission
with "fix-it" upgrades only. These transmissions are upgraded
in those areas that will cure the common problems that have plagued these
units over the years. We also improve the shift timing and feel for cleaner,
slightly firmer shifts. These are great units for stock or slightly modified
cars or trucks that are in need of a new transmission. This Level Transmission
is what you would expect from a local transmission shop without the
precision machining. Few shops have the specialized equipment needed to
perform these operations. This is also what most of the "big"
names in this business call their performance street level transmission.
make great inexpensive transmissions to install into mild street rods, relatively
stock cars and trucks up to 350 hp.
Please don't take our
word on this, we encourage you to do a direct comparison of features, go
to the big name company web sites and read there own descriptions of what
they offer for $400.00 to $700.00 more!
Level One Transmissions feature:
| · We start with
a General Motors TH-2004R 4 speed automatic V-8 case core. We completely
disassemble and inspect all parts. Our cases and tail housings are put through
a seven step refurbishing and cleaning process. When completed, this process
leaves the case with a beautiful, semi-polished, natural, aluminum finish.
Have you ever wondered why re-manufactured transmissions are always painted?
We clean and refurbish our cases so thoroughly that we don't even need to paint them.
· Like the heart
in your body, the transmission's internal hydraulic pump is critical to proper
operation and longevity. Both sides of the pump housing are precision machined
in every transmission we build, regardless of the performance level, heat,
pressure and age because these aluminum pump halves warp. This time-consuming
operation is an extremely important step that completely eliminates the
cross flow problems, common to these aluminum housings. This machining operation
is performed in our machine shop on our CNC Haas Lathe, which produces repeatability
within .0005". Diamond tooling is used during this process, which produces
a precision mating surface with a superb finish. We install a new, high
performance, 10 vane pump rotor, new guide rings and new vanes in every pump
we build. Our Level One units all receive a .470" main boost valve,
plus a larger low/reverse boost valve. A Teflon coated front bushing is
installed, as are new stator support bushings. A higher rate pressure regulator
spring is added and the pump regulator valve is modified for improved flow.
· Complete seal,
gasket, and bushing replacement, with all one piece Teflon seals.
· We use a premium
quality 2-4 band.
· Precision refinished
direct drum with Teflon bushing.
· New thrust roller
bearings are used throughout.
· New premium double
lip seals (front and rear).
spacer plate for improved shift timing and firmness.
· We precision calibrate
the Part Throttle/TV Valve circuits in the valve body for precise pressure
regulation, and proper shift timing.
accumulator for slightly cleaner and firmer shifts.
· New filter,
vent tube, and case connector.
· New TCC solenoid.
premium after market steels and frictions throughout.
· We install a drain
plug in the pan of all our transmissions for simplified maintenance purposes.
· All of our transmissions
are not only static pressure tested during assembly, but actually installed
and ran in a vehicle to be absolutely positive, that they not only perform
the correct functions, but "feel" correct. Feel is not something that can
be determined on a test stand or dynamometer.
