It’s pretty hard for us to hide our excitement about this one, as Gear Vendors is easily one of the most respected names in overdrive transmission kits in the automotive aftermarket. Moreover, Gear Vendors historically cut its teeth developing its grenade-proof under/overdrive systems specifically for Mopar applications (namely the 904 and 727 TorqueFlite automatics). Wait, really? Yes, really. Back when Gear Vendors first started producing the DeNormanville planetary overdrive in 1979, they were the only ones in the US to do so, which eventually got Gear Vendors developing overdrive systems for GM, Ford and Chrysler. Since winning their first SEMA award in 1981, Gear Vendors is the most awarded and recognized aftermarket transmission product.
Certainly, the TorqueFlite is one of the best factory 3-speed automatics to come from Detroit – so how do you make it better? By adding the Gear Vendors! With a Gear Vendors, you not only get to keep your factory transmission, but you add both overdrive and performance gear-splitting ratios to it. So what does that let you do? With your new Gear Vendors, your 727 or 904 is suddenly a 6-speed semi-automatic that is a top performing, durable transmission package. Bar none. And yes, you’re going to see big increases in fuel mileage (typically 22-28%) and performance while, according to Gear Vendors “also increasing the fun factor, 6 gears are cool.”
