Differences between built trannys

Between the Southern HotRod and the Paramount Performance? Besides $1200.

I know Bill offers a warranty, does SHR?

Warranty is $600 on the SHR website. The real question is, how many SHR trans have you heard about needing to be replaced compared to the amount of Paramount trans needing to be replaced?

I believe CMN1 poses the core question for any customer to ask itself, no pun intended.

To answer you first question... Our failure rate is non existent and his is, well..., very existent. :-)

We have an optional warranty. It will cost $600. This is a limited warranty based on RWHP levels. 0-750 is covered for 12 months or 12 thousand miles. 751-1000 is covered for 6 months or 6 thousand miles. 1001 and up has no warranty.

Just curious now, Ive always wondered how warranting performance parts works especially dealing with power ratings and all. When you guys say 12 months for up to 750hp+ is that because youve tested it and pushing that kind of power to it will see to its demise over a year or a little more? And then 1000hp+ is 6 month warranty, so would someone who daily drives it and track it maybe one/twice a month expect to have it rebuilt after 6 months? Just curious how you decided on warranties and what the typical lifetime is on these things, thats all. I see no fail rate yet, so no one has had an issue since youve began selling these? Have any dynos from guys running these along w/ time periods? Just trying to do research as a tranny will be down the line when the motor gets swapped. Thanks for any input you can provide

Re: Differences between built trannys

I'm holding off. AJ/Westbruy Jeep decided that a tranny flush is the first thing I should try, so I let him do that (for $240). If that fails, he sells his version of a built tranny for $3699.

Re: Differences between built trannys

He used to push Bill's pretty hard as a preference, direct competition should make for an interesting dynamic. Word's out now on who does what and what product does what. Has been for a while and the latest "developments" that no one dare talk about are the finishing touches. All that astroturf on Lxforums and the red site is so sad its funny. Good to see more options for the hemi community. Let us know if the flush helps improve your function.

What condition are you trying to correct with a flush?

Re: Differences between built trannys

Before AJ became the "Hemituner" he worked on every Tranny in the fleet. His
coworker Bill was right along side him. If AJ says it will work, it will work and he stands behind his work jsut as much as any vendor. I witnessed AJ rebuild a tranny with some "parts" before and the results were very good. I thank my stars I have him on my cell!!
