Read the website. This is where it starts. Your job is to check out the services that we offer and to read the Frequently Asked Questions section of the site, as there is a wealth of information there.


Compare. When comparing transmission shops the advertised price doesn't mean anything if you're not getting the same parts & service. Make sure to compare all the parts replaced when comparing our transmissions against other shops. Also, understand that we are shot peening the gears and other highly stressed parts in the transmissions that we build. If you were to send out your gears to any company that shot peens gears you'll pay around $400 just for this service alone. We build the very best transmissions and you will find that our prices are competitive, especially when you consider our superior build quality and the additional services that we offer as standard.  If you have questions, please contact us. We can explain all the options and the pro's & con's, so you yourself can easily make the wise choice when it comes to what you really need and not just what we can sell you.


Contact us.  There are two methods for contacting us. You can email our tech/sales department, or call the workshop Tuesday-Friday between the hours of 10am-5pm,  269.382.2669  I'll try to answer it every time it rings but sometimes I'm busy or out of the shop. If you can't reach me by phone please  email me with your questions and leave me your phone number so that we can call you.


You make up your mind & pull the trigger. There are a couple ways to ship the transmission; the correct way & the wrong way.  Our round trip shipping service is the correct way.  Just click on the shipping link on the left of the screen and you'll know why.


The transmission is tagged and stamped once we receive it. After we sign for your transmission, we enter in your info into our database and stamp you initials and the invoice # onto the transmission to insure that you get your own transmission back.


The transmission is disassembled and hot tanked. Your transmission is carefully taken apart and washed in our high pressure 160*F hot tanks. Your transmission parts come out so squeaky clean, you could eat off them.


All of your parts are thoroughly inspected, wet magnafluxed and wear patterns checked. All parts are measured and against manufacture specified tolerances and we hold a tighter spec on critical parts that are prone to failure. At TRE, your gearsets are not just visually inspected; we use wet Magnaflux machine detect cracks that you can't see with the naked eye. Think of it this way, would you go to a surgeon who doesn't use an X-ray machine? Afterwards, gear wear patterns are thoroughly checked to insure a proper and full uniform tooth contact for maximum durability.


All parts are glass beaded.  We are proud of what we do for a living and want you to be happy not only with how the transmission drives but also with how it looks both inside and out.  True it takes a little longer but we feel that it's worth it and it looks better than paint any day.


We contact you and let you know what should be replaced and what upgrades we have for your transmission.  We document everything, keeping all notes to insure accuracy. We have 30 years combined experience with Mitsubishi transmissions in our shop. We can assist you in deciding what you really need, not just parts we can sell you.  All correspondence is kept in our records insuring accuracy.


We replace all parts that are out of spec or in question with new updated modified parts. We certainly donít want you to have to go through another rebuild.  Your parts are carefully inspected and if anything needs replacement we do it.  We are not known for being the cheapest shop when it comes to transmission rebuilds but we are known for building a stout transmission that lasts.  Our philosophy is that it is best to spend the long dollar and have it done right the first time.


We stock OEM/JDM spec parts. TRE has the largest inventory of hand selected OEM & JDM parts. We have virtually anything your transmission may need in stock. All parts are the latest & greatest part number. We only use premium bronze synchronizers. All parts that we receive from Mitsubishi are measured and inspected, only accepting the best of parts, refusing those that donít meet our specifications.


We replace all non-reusable parts.  (end nuts, snap rings, roll pins, seals, springs.) There are certain items that other shops will try to reuse in a pinch or when trying to do a cheaper rebuild.  This isnít wise or something we practice.


Front differentials are properly repaired and clearanced. The front differential housing is TIG welded up and machined if necessary. We adjust the backlash correctly and install all new shims and thrust washers.


Center differentials are properly repaired and clearanced.  We precision machine our center differential housings, in house, on a CNC vertical machining center.  Center differentials receive: the Torrington thrust bearing upgrade, backlash is adjusted correctly and include all new shims and spider gear thrust washers. Simply the best is what you get at TRE.


We shot peen gears. Click here to understand why our transmissions hold up the best.


Our in house machine shop ensures quality precision work. We have a complete machine shop capable of all your transmission machining needs. We are capable of blue-printing the transmission and performing our tricks of the trade to give you the very best service and strength possible out the transmission. We inspect everything; Wet-Magnaflux all parts for cracks, check to see if the teeth are meshing on the diametric pitch circle, stress relieve the gear teeth, hand detail the parts, some parts get shot peened while others get vibratory finished and polished. We modify the oiling passages to improve lubrication in the transmission which has proven to dramatically reduce transmission temps and increase life of various components.  We blue print the transmission; making corrections to both the case and to the gearsets. This increases the durability while extending the service life of the transmission.   Just send us an email with any of your questions.



We properly adjust bearing preloads/clearances. While some consider it rocket science it's not, but bearings are designed to have a certain amount of preload or clearance on them for long service life and we make sure they are right on the money, using only high quality bearings and proven techniques that provide the longest bearing life while holding the gearsets tight.


We use a torque wrench on all fasteners. Proper torque on fasteners ensures maximum strength and durability.


We warranty our work for 12 months.  *click here for warranty info.*
