By the Numbers: Top Sportsman Powerglide

Our Top Sportsman Powerglide gets a lot of love from the best racers, and for good reason; it's our most powerful transmission, and an investment racers make when they want to get serious about winning and making the most out of the cars and trucks they put so much love and energy into.
 
There was a time before every successful racer with a Top Sportsman reaped the benefits and made the change. Maybe 2018 is the right time to make the switch if you haven't already.
 
Here's a rundown on the numbers for the top-of-the-line transmission designed for powerful cars and big wins.
 
By the numbers:
  • Number of people it takes to build one: Two—one builder, and one tester.
  • Average time it takes to assemble one Top Sportsman: Two hours
  • Horsepower capacity: Up to 2400 HP
  • Number of speeds: Two—high and low.
  • Pounds of main line pressure: 275+
  • First gear ratio: 1.80 (the most popular)
