How to Use BTE’s Transmission & Torque Converter Tune Up Services

It’s tune-up time! While BTE is in the business of manufacturing and distributing new high-performance parts for your racing vehicles, we also service your current parts for the absolutely best performance so you and your car are ready to roll when the season heats up. 


Now is the best time to get your powerglides, torque converters and other racing transmissions tuned up. Just FYI: They don't have to be from BTE, we service all types of equipment from all manufacturers.


To get the most out of our tune-up services, here are some easy tips to follow. Our goal is to get your equipment back in perfect condition and in plenty of time before the first big race of the year.

  1. We will work our hardest to return your product as quickly as possible. However, please understand that hundreds of torque converters and transmissions arrive at our facility this month for service. While we services them as fast as we can, we also need to take the time to do it right. Make sure you send parts with plenty of time for delivery to the BTE facility, allow time for our mechanics to do the job right and the time to get it back home to you and your vehicle.

  1. When sending in torque converters, please use FedEx or UPS. While the USPS is sometimes less costly, their deliveries are often inconsistent. Also—and this is very important—please drain as much oil from the torque converters as possible and wrap them securely. The package carriers can dispose of leaky boxes! Don't let this happen to you.

  1. Transmissions should all be shipped on FedEx freight. We have great discounts, so call us before shipping to make sure you share in the low freight costs.

  1. It's simple, but it happens sometimes: Don't forget to include your name and contact information with any powerglides, racing transmissions or torque converters sent to us for its annual checkup. Otherwise, we won't know how to get in touch with you if we have questions.


BTE is proud to be a full-service transmission shop and manufacturer. Thank you for trusting us with your parts and for letting us be a part of your racing team.
