Gearstar Performance Transmissions manufactures world-class, high-performance automatic transmissions built to exact specifications. From start to finish, they are built by the industry's top expert technicians. We are employee owned by people that have a true passion for what they do, using only the best US made performance parts available. Each transmission is custom re-manufactured, built to specs - That means we don't have pre-built transmissions sitting on our shelves. In order to maintain consistency and quality during the building process, each and every transmission is handled by a single builder from start to finish. And every single transmission is put through rigorous qualification and inspection process, along with the fact that each transmission and converter are extensively dyno-tested as a package equivalent of 100 mph on the street where we check hydraulic pressures, temperatures, shift quality, converter stall and lock-up. We make sure each all shift points are at the correct RPM before engaging into the next gear. When you receive your transmission and converter package, you can be sure it is functioning perfectly, because we make sure it's perfect before it leaves our shop. Whether it is a Turbo 350 going behind a mild small block or a 4L85E built for a C5R 440 blown LSX, the same expert technicians will be working on either package. At Gearstar Performance Transmissions, we approach each project as if it was going into one of our own personal vehicles.

The Clevo Commando is in process! From left to right we have a 650 hp Cleveland, a ‘72 Jeep Commando, an Advance Adapters Atlas transfer case with 1.5:1 low for sand and mud action, and a Gearstar Transmissions TH400 (yes, Chevy trans) with a brake and reverse manual valve body. Gonna be ridiculous fun on Roadkill Garage on MotorTrend! (And yes I know the tires are backwards, thanks.)

Sad day , at the insistence of my builder Jimmy Campbel, I bought my 1st Ad in Street Rodder in 1999, 1/4 page Black & White from Jeannine Web, introducing 1st ever DYNO tested complete 700R4 package w $995.00 for Tri Star Int Inc, My company at time.

Today is a day we’ve all dreaded. With the exception of Motor Trend, Hot Rod, and Four Wheeler, TEN Publishing will cease the print products of its magazine brands. These titles will continue as web sites and social media accounts, and major investments are being made in digital, so the editors may keep their jobs to continue with that content. As a lifelong fan of print who made his career as a magazine editor, this is a devastating heartbreak of a day—but not a surprise. 19 magazines will stop being printed. This closure of print was not a decision made by the MotorTrend company. Also, this does not affect the MotorTrend app or online video.

Another engine for Gearstar Twin Turbo 427 LSX fuel mapped, with Dominator System, ready to drop in Hot Rod.

Customer delivered their twin turbo 427 LSX engine with air intake system to run on the Engine dyno and base tune with Holley EFI.

After getting some steady state base tune work done and then performing a WOT pull we made 733hp with 798 lbft of torque at 6000 RPM on 93 octane. It was making 5 lbs of boost. Plenty left in this package to put more boost to it when the customer is ready.

I just hit 283,000 followers. It’s taken more than a year to crawl from 282,000. Facebook changed the algorithm to punish public pages like this one (ie, not pages of “real friends”) and radically cut down my reach. I used to grow 1,000 followers in like three weeks. No more. Not that I’m judging my life by social media (maybe a little), but it’s a shame that The people who enjoy my stuff don’t get to see my stuff, and that the people I’d like to talk with also end up being cut out. Thanks for all who do follow me, and thanks for taking the time to comment. I read virtually every comment and reply when I can. I’d appreciate you sharing me when you feel it’s worthy.

Well after 10 years of owning this, I have decided to sell it. This thing really needs to be completed!!! It would be so cool running down the road.

It started out as a 1926 Ford Coupe, and had the trunk removed to become an extended cab pickup cab. It has a rectangular tube chassis that is mocked up, but needs final welding. There is a narrowed 8" Ford rear end (open/gear?) with a '40 style buggy spring and ladder bars in the rear. It comes with the motor/trans you see in the pictures (283/T-350), the transmission was supposed to be rebuilt already. The motor ?, I would plan on rebuilding it, or give it a shot your call. There are a lot of parts that go with this package to complete it. The body is just sitting in place on the chassis, this is a project!

Clear Ohio title in my name.
12,000 OBO $10,500 without the 6 Deuce intake.
Winter's coming, and now is the time to get to work on this for a season of fun!
