By Fiona Vernon

Anyone who knows Gearstar Performance Transmissions recognizes the love that they hold in their soul for hot rod and street rod transmissions. They aren’t looking to rebuild the wife’s minivan trans and knows how every gearhead feels when they are looking for someone to trust with their baby. They feel the same way about the high-quality US made parts that they depend on as a transmission rebuilding company. Anyone from Raleigh, North Carolina, to Reno, Nevada, who is looking for a hot rod transmission company who understands that each customer and high performance automatic transmission has its own specific needs can count on Gearstar Performance Transmissions and Yank Performance Converters for the experience and expertise to handle any order. This partnership is trusted only by the best from Miami, Florida, to Toledo, Ohio, as well as internationally, for custom-built GM, Ford, and Mopar performance transmissions.

Gearstar Performance Transmissions is known throughout the world for their high standards and perfection when it comes to custom built GM, Ford, and Mopar high performance automatic transmissions. Anyone from Reno to Miami who is involved in the car world at all knows that whoever Gearstar trusts, they can trust. This can’t be any truer than the way they feel about Yank Performance Converters. One of the reasons that Yank Converters is #1 in the industry is the fact they stay on the leading edge of technology with the standard features they offer. Each one comes with new Torrington bearings not used from a junkyard core, and they are furnace brazed throughout. All 245mm models have doubled-finned drive turbines, which add additional strength at the tip of the blade where high horsepower cars can roll the blade over. All Yank Performance Converter models possess a custom-machined one-piece front cover made from solid billet steel without castings or forgings and will not balloon under extreme heat and line pressures. They also use an extra wide oversized lockup clutch material to handle the added abuse with extra torque and horsepower. They have figured out what works and what fails during their extensive 15 years of experience.

Whether someone in Raleigh ordered a 4L85E Pro Series for off-roading and is waiting on a Yank Performance Converter PY Series before it is DYNO tested for 100 miles or an individual in Toledo needs a 4L60E Level III with a Yank converter to transfer the power for an SS Series, Gearstar Performance Transmissions has one of five master technicians who follow each custom-built high performance automatic transmission through its entire process. This hot rod transmission rebuilding company is intimately involved in each of their projects and takes great pride and happiness in knowing that the end result is one that gives the client extreme joy. He is there to accommodate every step to the specifications that have been set by the customer. Bob Snyder, a satisfied customer, had this to say:

“Visited the shop to pick up my transmission. As a motorhead for 50 years, what I saw impressed me – it was organized and clean, but obvious that real work was being done. More to come once it is installed. (T bucket/sprint chassis, gen I 392, injected/nitrous… 4L60 phase 4)”

Gearstar Performance Transmissions are trusted by the finest car enthusiasts from Toledo, Ohio, to Raleigh, North Carolina, because they also partner with the best for all their high-quality US made parts. One of those partnerships is with the most trusted name in the high-performance market, Yank Performance Converters, with their hand-built torque converters.
