Rebuilt transmission


Recommended Posts

Hello - I have been looking into companies that rebuild transmissions and have narrowed it down to a couple. I was trying to get some feed back on Vertex auto, see if anyone had experience with their rebuilt transmission or as a service company in general

Hi

Try Gbox LLC. I bought a reman unit for my 996. Well done, and good prices....

Regards

Kare

GBOX kicks ***! honest and quick service.... i got my box replaced, they swapped my LSD form my trashed box to there new one and replaced the won LSD plates... ~$3500

ill call them but the cost i am looking at with vertex is 2500 + core and shipping, do they do anything special at gbox? what engagement issues are you referring to?

do a search for "2nd gear pop out", gears not engaging or anything like that on this forum or 6speed. or you can call them and they will explain it to you. basically it has something to do with how much room there is for the gear to engage in 1st and 2nd gears... so i cant really remember the specifics, but GBOX will explain it to you even if you dont buy from them.

i talked to the master mechanic for over 30min.... and i hadnt even told them i wanted to get my box fixed

I am also looking for a place to purchase a Rebuilt 6-Speed Transmission for my 996 C2.

I logged into the Vertex and the cost is $3400 + Core, not $2400 + Core.

Can anyone recommend me a place in Southern California that sells and installs transmissions?

Thanks!

call and talk to them, they gave me the old pricing after i talked to them

How long ago did you make your purchase? Was the transmission what you expected quality wise? Did the replacement go smoothly? How much did it cost you in labor for the replacement? Anything else you can tell me about your experience will be greatly appreciated! Thanks again!

I purchased the transmission 2 weeks ago, installed it a week ago. Labor was 0 because i installed it, there was absolutely nothing wrong with the transmission, and it runs great now, their customer service was pretty good, they shipped the advance replacement transmission in 3 days.

I think a shop will charge you around a grand for the labor

I have a friend that very recently got screwed by vertex auto on his core charge. Sent in the old tranny and never got the core charge back. After calling them, they said they needed a couple of parts replacements before returning the core charge. He sent them exactly what they needed overnight, and they still refused to return the core charge. On top of this, the rebuild tranny they sent was missing several components. This happened not two months ago.
