    • Level 10 Performance Transmissions Building the First High Torque Capacity Automatic/Steptronic Transmission for the N54 (335/135/535)

      As many, probably all of you know, I've been having a slipping transmission since the record setting track day. After a vast search of capable transmission specialists, I decided to go with Level 10 Transmissions, located right here in my own NJ. I have heard their name thrown around in high HP/TQ domestic crowd before, but never knew they were in NJ. From the moment I talked to Pat on the phone, my spider senses kicked in and told me this is the place I need to go to get what I want done, when I want it done, and done right the first time.

      With the help of fellow BB member AKH23456, we made the 2 1/2 hr trip to drop my car off. As AK can confirm, my spider senses were correct. From the moment you spot the large facilities, you know this place means business. We walked in the front door and were greeted by walls and walls of Magaizine featured artciles, write-ups, and pictures of customers and their accomplishements thanking Level 10.

      A warm greeting by the receptionist and few minutes later by Pat himself. Not only did I have more than a few commonalities with Pat, which was nice, but he was genuinely excited about ME bringing my car to him, and my own accomplishements to this point. All of this was confirmed by his energetic fist-bumps when told what my record was, and then again when I told him what AK's AA supercharged M3 had run, ON STREET TIRES.

      So, a few quick photo's of the place as I wanted to get back on the road before traffic picked up, (didnt really save us BTW)

      The walls all the way around are covered with decades worth of accomplishments and pictures of grateful customers


      Small portion of the shop. Not pictured, but to the right is where the real magic happpens and all the transmissions are dissassembled and repaired/rebuilt

      More to come once the project is complete

        Why did you ever get rid of it? If you don't mind me asking, PM me if you want, how much did the level10 upgrade cost you? Did they ever give you a detail of exactly what they changed?
