Perhaps someone in Philadelphia regularly races their 1995 Chevrolet Camaro with a recently modified engine.

They achieve perfection by using superior US-made parts, paying great attention to details, and employing only carefully selected seasoned technicians. Gearstar assigns a single builder to each project, and it is built according to the exact requirements of the engine, horsepower and torque output, rear gear ratio, and the application to which it will serve. Whether someone in and around Walla Walla wants the GM 4L60E or 700R4, or a Ford, Allison, or Mopar performance transmission, they DYNO test each project with the appropriate converter the equivalent of 100 miles to ensure that it won’t leave their facility unless it is operating to perfection.

Longitudinal engine configurations accommodate the GM 4L60E high performance automatic transmission, including four forward gears and one reverse. The 700R4 was renamed the 4L60E when the electronic version was introduced. Earlier versions are recognizable by the one-piece bell housing and the later models feature a bolt-on bell housing, as well as the six-bolt hex rear output. Its impressive strength can be found in a wide variety of GM rear-wheel drive vehicles, such as the Sonoma, Taho, Yukon, Firebird, and Corvette. Gearstar Performance Transmissions can customize the 4L60E to the modified specifications that anyone from Ann Arbor to Lubbock presents to them. The 4L60E family uses two shift solenoids, resulting in four distinct gear ratios by the activation and deactivation of the solenoids in a predetermined pattern. Additionally, many benefits can be found in the 4L60E — including its durability, broad application, modular design, power, and the fact that new models are continually being improved upon.
