Hi, does anybody know of or had any experience with any Dodson certified shops in Europe which have the right equipment, training and skills to properly upgrade the GTR's transmission?

on the Dodson website among other, there is a shop called Total Car Concept in Holland and Sumo Power in UK. Are they capable of safely performing work on the transmission and anybody had any experience with these shops?

Been in contact with Perra and he seems like a upstanding guy.
He got a P800 so I'm guessing he know what he is doing :thumbsup:
Maybe you have see some youtube clips from m5board on a red GT-R, that's his.

Where are you located?

Might be worth coming to our shop and do a big engine build at the same time? :)

You can always have the car sent on a transporter.

I'm located in Spain and I'd love a alpha 9 or something similar in the future :irock: :) but for the moment I'm just running midpipe and catback, car is pretty new. next step will be intake + cobb :)
this is why I am slowly starting to look for shops which can upgrade my transmission. local Nissan dealer will most likely reject my warranty as soon as they see turbo pressue levels have been altered and I'm afraid something happens to the gearbox :zzz:

They give training on other tuners regarding rebuilding gr6 transmissions. I guess 23gtr.se  is having direct training courses from Dodson?

We're located in Mandelieu, in between St Tropez and Monaco front of Cannes airport.
We do SST EVO X gearboxes too.

Yep, Litchfield have rebuilt all the UK GT-R gearboxes that have failed. Nissan HPCs have not allowed been allowed to open gearboxes (so far) so they've shipped them all to Litchfield.
They've upgraded loads with Dodson parts and I believe Glenn visited them and trained their techs?
