HOW IT GETS DONE
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.
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
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.

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

would you go to a surgeon who doesn't use an X-ray machine? Afterwards, gear wear patterns are
thoroughly checked to

All parts are glass beaded.

pinch or when trying to do a cheaper rebuild. This isnít wise or
something we practice.
