Rod Shop: Top Gear

We have a Gearstar transmission in the Project '49 Chevy and for good reason. All Gearstar trannies are assembled one at a time by a single technician, built specifically for each vehicle's specifications and driving needs. The TH350 Level 2 shown here is a Gearstar Street Performance transmission and torque converter package, and is designed to work behind a small-block engine producing up to 400 hp with 360 lb-ft of torque in a street-driven hot rod or custom. It will provide firm positive shifts that are not abusive, though it is not intended as a racing application. The trans and converter are extensively dyno-tested as a package, then shipped with 7 quarts of 100 percent synthetic ATF inside the transmission and 3 quarts of Dextron 3, tailshaft mount, and 20,000gvw Haden cooler in an integrated pallet.
