The age old question. Choose a stock transmission or upgrade to a performance transmissions. How do I decided? To answer the question, we need to take a look at what makes them different.

The main difference between a stock transmission and a performance transmission is their ability to handle power and torque. A stock transmission is designed to meet the needs of the average driver, providing smooth shifting and reliable operation under normal driving conditions.

On the other hand, a performance transmission is designed to handle the increased power and torque output of a high-performance engine. These transmissions are built with stronger materials and components, such as reinforced gears, clutches, and torque converters, to handle the increased stress and heat generated by a high-output engine.

Performance transmissions are also designed with different gear ratios and shift patterns, optimized for high-speed acceleration and quick shifting. This allows the driver to get the most performance out of their vehicle, whether they’re racing on the track or just want to enjoy the thrill of high-speed driving.

Overall, a performance transmission is built to handle more power and torque than a stock transmission, providing improved acceleration and overall performance. However, they are typically more expensive and may not be necessary for the average driver. If you plan to modify your vehicle for high-performance driving, upgrading to a performance transmission may be a good investment.
