Our Remanufactured NV4500 Transmission Upgrades & Upgrades

Put simply, a remanufactured transmission is a used transmission that has been returned to a like-new condition. Each remanufactured NV4500 is built in our state of the art factory by skilled Certified technicians. They test everything from metal thickness to spring tension before the process begins. And every hard part” that doesn’t measure up to the manufacturer’s original specifications, gets replaced. By the time it’s finished, a reman transmission should perform exactly like a new one. Now lets take a closer look at what sets a Street Smart Transmission apart from the rest: 

All Gears & Shafts Meet OEM Specifications 

All of the gears and the main shaft inside each remanufactured NV4500 that we produce, is carefully inspected for cracks and tested for straightness. Any hard part that shows signs of wear or damage is immediately replaced. 

Upgraded Seals & Gaskets 

To increase longevity, every remanufactured NV4500 transmission gets upgraded seals and gaskets that are made from a stronger heat resistant material. This upgrade is especially important for severe service (towing, off-roading, performance driving), where heat buildup can be a serious concern. 

Durable Bearings 

All of the new hardened bearings in a remanufactured NV4500 transmission not only perform better under load. They also create less friction for reduced operating temperatures and a longer transmission life. 

Fully Inspected & Dyno Tested 

Every remanufactured Street Smart Transmission undergoes multiple inspections by Certified inspectors throughout the build process. Once complete, your newly remanufactured NV4500 transmission is dyno tested to break-in all of the new parts, and to ensure that everything works correctly prior to shipment. And speaking of, shipping is always Free, and you also get a 3-Year/Unlimited Mile Nationwide Warranty that covers parts and labor for repairs that are performed by any licensed repair shop in the country.

About the NV4500 Transmission

The result of a joint venture between Chrysler and General Motors, the NV4500 transmission is a heavy duty 5 speed manual transmission. It uses a constant mesh helical gear arrangement with fully synchronized forward gears. Reverse gear was not synchronized until later in the production line. Since the NV4500 transmission was designed for use in heavy duty applications, it has a granny-low 1st gear, dual PTO ports, and a sturdy cast-iron case with an aluminum top cover. 

Interestingly, the Dodge NV4500 / Chevy NV4500 was introduction for nearly 20 years (1992 – 2007). The design and production of the NV4500 came after a merger between the General Motors Muncie transmission division and the Chrysler transmission. This new joint venture was ironically named the New Venture Gear Corporation, and the NV4500 transmission was gearboxes to be made by the new cooperative. 

 

Chevy NV4500 Transmission 

In order to maximize engine torque when necessary, the GM / Chevy NV4500 transmission used a granny low 1st gear with a ratio of 6.34. It also has a 4.685” front bolt pattern. The 1995 and later GM / Chevy NV4500 was updated to a 5.61 first gear and 6.043” front bolt pattern that was used in the Dodge NV4500. They also gave it a synchronized reverse gear and increased the size of the front bearing retainer from 5.125” to 5.6” in diameter. 

The GM / Chevy NV4500 4WD transmission had a 1 1/8” x 6 5/8” 10 spline input shaft with a 0.590” pilot tip. This common Chevy 5 speed manual transmission 4×4 also came with an 8 1/8” tail housing and a 32 spline output shaft. 

Dodge NV4500 Transmission 

Although the Chevy NV4500 and Dodge NV4500 are nearly identical twins, there are some fundamental differences that made them unique to their respective automotive brand. For example, the 1992 – 1997 Dodge NV4500 transmission used a higher gear ratio than its General Motors counterpart. It also used carbon fiber composite synchronizer rings, with dual cone synchronizers for 1st and 2nd gears. This version of the NV4500 transmission also had an integrated interlock mechanism to prevent 2>1 downshifts when the speeds were too high.  

Other differences between the Dodge NV4500 and the GM NV4500 include a concentric internal hydraulic slave cylinder with an integrated and throwout bearing. The 1992 Dodge NV4500 had a 19 spline 1” diameter input shaft. 1993+ Dodge NV4500 had a 10 spline input shaft that measured 1.25 inches in diameter. The Dodge NV4500 2wd transmission had a 30 spline output shaft, and the Dodge NV4500 4×4 transmission got a 23 spline output shaft. This was changed to 29 splines after the 2001 model year.

Remanufactured NV4500 vs. Rebuilt or Used

Reman NV4500 vs. Rebuilt NV4500?
Both are good options but the best option for you depends on the transmission problem, the year, make and model of vehicle, the mileage and the vehicle value. What kind of warranty coverage are you looking for? Remanufactured transmissions carry a longer, 3 year, nationwide warranty with additional upgrades while a rebuilt unit generally carries up to a 1 or 2 year warranty and upgrades vary from shop to shop.
Reman NV4500 vs. Used NV4500?
Buying a used NV4500 transmission may save you money. However, if the unit does not work properly after installed, you will more than likely have to pay the labor again for removal and reinstall of the transmission PLUS the freight to ship the transmission back to the salvage yard. The additional cost may be higher than installing a reman or rebuilt transmission–not to mention the extra downtime. Warranties for a used transmission is only 30 days, 60 days, 90 days or 6 months. Used transmissions, since there is no way to know how many miles are on them, may fail at any time.
