Work hard, but play harder. This motto gets many people through the long, hard hours that they put into their careers. People expect the same of their toys, so when anyone from Boston, Massachusetts, to Seattle, Washington, is looking for transmissions for a high-performance street car with a large V-8 or higher performance engine, they will find the customization they require at Gearstar Performance Transmissions. Whether someone in Akron, Ohio, needs an extra gear with overdrive for their ‘84 Olds Cutlass 442 or a gearhead in Charlotte, North Carolina, is looking for a less expensive, easy conversion from two to four speeds, the 200 4R is the high-performance automatic transmission that can match their specifications. This local transmission company offers custom GM, Ford, and Mopar performance transmissions for all muscle car enthusiasts.
The GM 200 4R is the sleeper of the transmission world, and its qualities are sometimes underestimated; however, it’s nearly as powerful as the 700R4. This transmission is used in older cars from Boston to Charlotte and gives them an overdrive gear and more horsepower, while bolting easily into most Chevys without the need for much modification. A custom 200 4R transmission from Gearstar Performance Transmissions is an excellent upgrade from a TH350 or TH400 with its overdrive that considerably improves vehicle performance. It produces up to 550 horsepower and 500 foot-pounds, weighing up to 4,000 pounds; however, it can also be used in lighter vehicles at power levels up to 800 horsepower and 800 foot-pounds in certain applications. Gearstar Performance Transmissions in Akron assigns only one master technician to each transmission from start to finish so that no detail is overlooked. They use only the highest quality US made parts, resulting in swift-shifting gears with precision response.
No high-performance automatic transmission leaves Gearstar Performance Transmission’s facility without being DYNO tested the equivalent of 100 miles to ensure its perfect operation. Anyone in Seattle and beyond in search of a transmission for a high-performance street car will not be disappointed in the variety of GM, Ford, and Mopar performance transmission customizations at which this local transmission company excels. 200 4R’s are becoming harder to find, while remaining an ideal replacement for older two-speed Powerglides or three-speed Turbo Hydra-Matics. This overdrive transmission makes better use of fuel with its decrease in engine speed when using the overdrive gear, resulting in less wear and tear and increased fuel efficiency. It is surprisingly affordable, since it doesn’t rely on a computer. Anyone upgrading to the 200 4R will not regret the decision when they notice less engine wear.
Gearstar Performance Transmissions knows that every gearhead from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Seattle, Washington, doesn’t look at their car as a hobby, but as their baby, and this local transmission company places the same amount of care into each high-performance automatic transmission that they build. The fourth gear of a custom 200 4R transmission allows the engine to rotate at lower RPMs, saving fuel and reducing deterioration, while allowing placement without many alterations to the car in which it is being installed. Anyone from Boston, Massachusetts, to Akron, Ohio, searching for a GM, Ford, or Mopar transmission for a high-performance street car will find all the knowledge and power they need at Gearstar Performance Transmissions.
