What is a turbo 350 transmission used for?
Performance GM transmissions empower drivers to take their hobbies to the next level. Not everyone starts their journey with the most horsepower or best available vehicle. For those looking to power their daily drivers or who are new to the sport the 350 is a useful option.
This model replaced the venerable Powerglide in the 1960s and saw use in some of the most esteemed Chevy sports cars through the 1990s. This includes the Chevelle, Monte Carlo, and the Caprice made famous by Richard Petty.
Is a turbo 350 transmission good?
If this transmission were not a quality product, Richard Petty would never have used it. His 1970 race car flew through the NASCAR competition with the consistent power provided by GM transmissions.
The cars originally using this transmission are now classics and sleepers. Drag racers love the Caprice for its large engine bay and stock power, continuing to tune up and race their cars into 2020.
Turbo 350 specs
The turbo 350 powering classic American muscle has equally venerable specifications. The turbo 350 specs include:
- Level 2, level 3, and level four performance
- The capacity to handle up to 400 lb-ft of torque
- The ability to take on up to 700hp
The power of your classic determines the horsepower you need. Better engines require at least a level three transmission. Gearstar makes every transmission to handle your build with quality steel and strong parts.
Which transmission do I need?
Leveling up your classic car gives it the ability to handle higher-performance engines. The basic level two costs half as much as the level four but only handles 400 horsepower.
Level three transmissions let you shift smoothly up to 500 horsepower. Our highest level takes on four speeds for top-of-the-line performance. This is the perfect option for anyone looking to compete with other classic car owners.
Can I replace my classic car transmission?
Every transmission needs maintenance, repair, and replacement. Transmissions wear out every 150000 to 200000 miles. You must find a new transmission. New options are almost never available without spending a fortune.
Gearstar provides used racing transmissions backed by a thorough inspection and industry-leading warranty. We strive to give customers peace of mind and avoid stalling on and off the track.
