If you’re ready to upgrade your transmission in your GM street or race truck, Hughes Performance has just the solution for you. The company’s Street/Strip model is a stout unit that has been designed for street performance and other applications where tire spinning shifts are desired.
The Street/Strip transmission contains racing components that increase strength, reliability, and torque capacity. All street/strip transmissions also feature either a manual- or automatic-shift valvebody.
Although Hughes makes models for Ford and Mopar as well, we highlight a model here that fits GM rear-wheel-drive O.D. transmission models, including the popular C/K pickups. It was originally used in a non-electronic form in the early 1980s by General Motors. Hughes Performance has continued to improve this unit both in durability and technology. All internal parts are carefully inspected and many of the original equipment pieces are replaced with Hughes high-performance components.
The company also replaces OEM clutch plates with its special high-coefficient one-sided frictions* for longer life and greater reliability. Kevlar bands have been installed in their transmissions for over 15 years. They co-developed with Borg Warner “High-Static Hold” material for increased holding power, especially in racing applications, for all brake band applications.
All lubrication and valvebody circuits are carefully inspected and modified for cooler and quicker operation. Hughes has manufactured countless numbers of these transmissions for a wide variance of vehicles and has earned an enviable reputation from racing to towing and all types of street performance, hot rods, and custom applications.
