SSP Performance has yet another transmission being repaired. We thought we would start sharing some the of internal upgrades we have been doing over the past few months. This is one of many transmission successfully being upgraded by SSP. We have been installing upgraded clutch discs, first gears and mainshafts, clutch baskets and seals, and now full solid mounting kits. All SSP transmission parts carry a 1 year warranty from date of installation.

We will be documenting a customers car from start to finish. We will share all of the details with the GTR world.

These are pictures of the GTR's first days in the shop starting to get repaired. This customers transmission has lost first gear and a few other parts.

This particular transmission would not engage into any gear. We will be pulling the transmission out today. It should be interesting to see what else we may find.

Day 2 of the transmission project. We found hundreds of metal filings inside of the transmisison after removing the valve body and filter. The next step will be to totally remove the transmission for a further inspection.

From talking with the customer, I believe it is a little of both.

SSP Performance
That and being boosted to 17psi with an exhaust that lets it rev a lot quicker. It is also circut track driven on courses that average about 2.5 miles with a lots of tight turns, so it runs in 2,3,4th gears a lot but has a lot of downshifts to 1st in the tight hairpins. I have noticed that the 1st gear downshifts are hard even though it rev matches it is still hard on it. These tracks are not like the ring where they did most of their testing at. In fact other than Laguna I am not sure how many small tight tracks they put it on. They claim it is a track ready car, but for which track.......................................................

You say your rebuilds are 1 year warranted. Is that with LC 1.0, as well?

All SSP performance parts carry a 1 year warranty from either date of purchase or date of installation. SSP transmisison products also carry this 1 year warranty. You can buy SSP products with confidence knowing you have this warranty. SSP does not warranty a first gear upgrade or launch control for the GTR.

We currently are using the PPG first gear upgrade. It has been working flawlessly.

We will have the new LC2 programed into the car anyways. We use the car on the circuits anyways, not the drags. We have been to the drag, but that is just to see what she would do with all the upgrades, before and after.
