Cost is almost always the number one question when it comes to big-time car part purchases. Crate engines, transmissions, and turn-key rear ends are highly customizable to fit a wide variety of applications from custom to concours. Therefore, they come with a wide range of options that add or subtract to the cost and complexity of the project.
Silver Sport Transmissions (SST) holds two things in high regard: customer satisfaction and accurate, transparent quoting. Some have and will continue to complain about the lack of a price list on things like their PerfectFit™ kits, but the reasoning is simple: without SST quoting the appropriate driveline package, the customer wouldn’t have much chance at satisfaction. And the only way for SST to quote the right stuff is for them to have every detail about the customer’s build.
A Quick Quote is the best place to start. Once a salesperson reviews the details, a PDF quotation is sent via email. Within that document is the full listing of necessary parts. Even if they’re in a package, the included items are still listed, but with a $0.00 price. Detailed descriptions leave no stone unturned.
From there, it’s easy to identify optional parts that may or may not be needed. In something as involved as an automatic to manual swap, the parts list is long and the detailed quote helps make sure nothing is forgotten. Any surprises down the road could be detrimental to both budget and build, so you’ll be sure to appreciate all of this work SST puts in on the front end.
