Gearheads in Mooresville, North Carolina, and Beyond Will Love Gearstar Performance Transmissions’ TH350

By Fiona Vernon

Muscle car junkies from Mooresville, North Carolina, to Dayton, Ohio, have conflicting opinions on what might be the most enticing street rod, and experts have even created lists of favorites over the years. A motorhead in Miami, Florida, may love stylish ‘68 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 with its 428 big-block, and another in Houston, Texas, may be obsessed with their ‘70 Olds 442 with its 455 big-block V-8. Regardless of the make and model, Gearstar Performance Transmissions custom builds high-performance automatic transmissions that will handle engines from 100 to 1,000+ horsepower for hot rods, classics, and collectibles. These hot rod transmission builders can help gearheads get ready for summer racing with their Ford, Mopar, and GM performance transmissions, such as the Turbo 350 transmission, or TH350. Each one is assembled with only the best American-made performance parts and DYNO tested to ensure its perfect function before ever leaving the facility. Call Gearstar Performance Transmission today for the perfect match to any spec!

Gearstar Performance Transmissions knows that anyone from Miami to Dayton with a muscle car has invested more than just finances into their dream car, but also their heart and soul. These hot rod transmission builders put the same amount of love into their high-performance automatic transmissions that their customers do. Each custom-built transmission, from Ford to Mopar, is constructed to the exact specifications of the needs of each car by a single builder from start to finish. The expert technician doesn’t pull a pre-made transmission from a shelf in the backroom, but assembles it using only the best American-made parts. Their high-performance automatic transmissions are manufactured to coincide with the precise needs of the engine, horsepower and torque output, rear gear ratio, weight of the vehicle, its intended function, and circumference of the rear wheel and tire. Each transmission and custom converter are extensively DYNO tested the equivalent of 100 miles to ensure that it will never leave the facility at less than optimal operation. Past customers can attest to the fact that they offer extensive knowledge and treat each custom manufactured transmission as if it were going into their own vehicle. Steve Alex had this to say:

Gearstar you are the only choice for a performance transmission. Against everyone’s advice you assured me that your TH350 with a trans brake would survive behind my 800 hp big block.

Over 100 passes and it never missed a beat. The gearing in that TH350 makes the car leave like an animal and the cubic inches stops people from reeling me in. Great combination thank you!!!”

Perhaps a car enthusiast in Mooresville has rebuilt a ‘66 Chevy Chevelle and is in search of a Turbo 350 transmission, or TH350, that can handle the 327 V-8 and its 350 horsepower as they are trying to get ready for summer racing. Only one hot rod transmission company can be trusted to match the specs involved in creating the perfect GM performance transmission and that’s Gearstar Performance Transmissions. The 3-speed automatic Turbo 350 transmission was unitedly developed by Chevrolet and Buick, replacing the GM Powerglide automatic transmission, which was used for 23 years. The TH350 was used in almost every GM rear wheel drive car and truck during its commission of 15 years. The TH350 hasn’t been in production since 1984 but had gained its popularity for its strength, versatility, and especially its extra gear. It is still used for many classic cars. The maximum torque that it can handle is dependent upon its application, requiring modification to adequately perform for the additional torque of stronger engines. One of the five expert technicians at Gearstar Performance Transmissions can build a level 2, 3, or 4 Turbo 350 transmission with custom torque converters specific to any classic or collectible with one phone call. Gary Ippolito agrees with many customers who have discovered their expertise:

“Over the last few years my brother and I have had Gearstar build high-performance transmissions for our hot rods and race cars. These include a 200R4, 4L80E, 700R4 and TH350. All have been bullet-proof and their staff has provided an exemplary level of support. They are our go-to transmission builders.”
