COMPETITION  TH400 TRANSMISSIONS
At CK Perfomance we are constantly performing research and development to improve and update our products.Our TH400 product line is unique.Our valve bodies and CNC machined internal components are propietary designs specific to our product line.Our power ratings on the transmissions we sell are based on flywheel horsepower and torque ratings.The ratings are conservative but are made with maximum performance and component life in mind.It is not uncommon for a custom to place our basic TH400 in a 1000 hosepower car and get satisfactory component life out of it.However ,this is not how we like to select a transmission for your application.Hard parts can and do fail and we highly recommend you follow our guidelines when making your selection.Please phone in and we can discuss your application as well as custom builds that dont match the information presented here.All of our transmission,regardless of power output,are assembled with maximum capacity clutch packs and needle bearing updates.2nd gear start transbrake is also available .Be sure to check out our custom gear ratio options below for special applications.All transmissions receive thorough DYNAMOMETER TESTING and IN CAR ROAD TEST before leaving our facility to guarantee a quality product is sent out to our customers.
