    Default Super Street Performance valve bodies

    All I can say is wow! What an eye opener. After testing the 10 salvage yard cores recieved from HEMI450, only had 1 that would pass for building meaning that 90% hit the scrap bin. If Super Street hadn't invested into the proper test equipment I may have shipped out 9 bad valve bodies that didn't function properly, or worse yet caused a transmission failure.

    Jerry, what's the plan for getting cores now then? Or are you going to have to start using brand new ones?

    Whats nice about this equipment is I get to f around and have some fun with it too. Found out if I crank the line pressure up too much I'll break the circuit board in the solenoid pack.

    I wonder if that's what caused the inconsistency in the stage III trans Jerry?

    Very well could be. Never did much more than air check the circuits and ohm check the solenoid packs back then. During the recent testing at Super Street I found cross leaks that go to the OD circuit takes anywhere's from 20-28 psi to close the pressure valve and causing the OD clutches to drag all the time even when not applied.

    Think of it this way Stu. Its sorta like watering your yard with a brand new garden hose. You have full control and direct the water stream to the places you want to water your grass. Now lets say after many watering's your garden hose develops pin hole leaks causing you to water the grass in places you don't want to water plus you loose water pressure to the places you want to water. Have a lot of money tied up in the new equipment thus the reason to also build other brands of transmissions.
