Transmission performance upgrades for your car might appear too far-fetched. Is it worth your hard-earned savings to spend such sums to boost the efficiency of your car? For the majority of the automobile enthusiasts, increasing the performance of cars simply meant tinkering about with the engine and fine-tuning it. Many people fail to look into the transmission systems (i.e. when it comes to improving the peak performance of their cars). Technicians now focus on replacing the normal components of automatic transmissions with high performance ones. The results of such endeavors will usually speak out for itself to the owner of the car.
While tuning the engine, you need to pay some attention to upgrading the existing transmission too. Only then, higher power generated by the engine will cross through the transmission to the wheels. At times, the simplest of the replacements within automatic transmission systems will produce drastic differences. It is possible to explain the significance of the above-mentioned statements with the help of an example. Thrust washers are small components designed to avoid the contact in between two metal surfaces within a transmission system. Little do people realize that the quality of the thrust washer can determine how much power you can convey to the wheel!
Perhaps this can explain why 4L80E – Level 2 Transmission with Torque Converter comes with its own and unique sets of thrust washers. Along with input / output speed sensors, the entire arrangement will always keep on performing optimally soon after the completion of the upgrade. The engines of this generation have various kinds of electronic configurations to provide satisfactory performance to the owners. Proper wiring harness is thus necessary in order to convey these electrical pulses in a timely manner back and forth the transmission system.
A complete revamp of the transmission system is necessary while installing performance upgrades. The pressure switch manifold helps the underlying system to understand more about the current gear selected. Gear Star offers a renovated pressure switch manifold along with their transmission systems featuring torque converters. Let us know more about your experiences after installing such performance upgrades.
