A well-built vehicle can be compared to the human body and its mechanic to a medical doctor. Just like the heart of the car is the engine, the tranny is the body with the muscle that gives it the power to move. It can’t function at its best without each component operating in perfect unison. Anyone from Mooresville, North Carolina, to Erie, Pennsylvania, who wants one of the best transmissions ever built to power either a GM small or big block engine can trust the master technicians at Gearstar Performance Transmissions in Akron, Ohio, for a perfect custom remanufactured GM high-performance 700R4 transmission. Later known as the 4L60, this impressively versatile transmission has the strength to power everything from a heavy Suburban to the speed requirements of a ’69 Chevelle. A car enthusiast in Columbus, Ohio, needs to know that he’s getting the right transmission to coincide with the custom upgrades that he has performed on his prized Chevrolet Camaro or Corvette, and this custom manufacturing company will take any stock transmission and customize it specifically to each vehicle’s needs, whether it’s a Mopar, Ford, or GM performance transmission that is required.
What each person from Mooresville to Columbus desires when they have set upon the mission of restoring a classic car or building the perfect speed-producing machine is a transmission that complements the specifications of each customized component. Each person building a 350-small block is going to have it come out looking and performing differently. No one’s project is standard, like the stock engines and trannies that manufactures produce, so getting the right transmission is essential to every vehicle’s overall function. It may look pretty, but if it doesn’t have the power behind it, it won’t hold its own on the pavement. Gearstar Performance Transmissions in Akron has one master technician from start to finish build a custom remanufactured automatic Ford, Mopar, or GM high-performance transmission to match each person and vehicle’s exact specifications. No detail will ever be overlooked, and each unit is DYNO tested with converter the equivalent of 100 miles to ensure that the transmission and converter package operate perfectly before ever leaving their facility.
As automotive technology advanced through the years and fuel efficiency became more of a concern, the production of many components was to improve upon the one before. Gearstar Performance Transmissions can attest to the fact that one of the most versatile and popular transmissions ever produced was the 700R4 transmission, or the 4L60, which was constantly being improved upon. Two of the reasons that it is considered one of the best overdrive transmissions is the improved fuel consumption and the much lower gear ratio in first gear, allowing good acceleration from a stop. This four-speed automatic transmission, sometimes referred to as the Hydramatic, boasts a 30% overdrive in fourth gear, is longitudinally positioned, and ideal for up to 6,000 pounds gross vehicle weight. It holds 11 quarts of transmission fluid and is constructed of cast aluminum; however, the stock version of the 700R4 transmission is easily overheated in cars that are driven hard, which is where this custom manufacturing company comes in, highly recommending the installation of an aftermarket cooler to prevent overheating. Anyone in Erie and beyond will wonder why they didn’t call sooner!
