    AVOID HCF - I paid them $1200 for a synchro 5 MONTHS ago. They have not delivered and will not refund me. Threatened me with their lawyer.

    Thanks Randy, I much appreciate your consideration. There's nothing else I have to add on the original poster's complaint. The process for supporting one-off parts, one-at-a-time to a retail customer is clunky and sometimes has its challenges. On the OEM parts distribution side - we do our...

    AVOID HCF - I paid them $1200 for a synchro 5 MONTHS ago. They have not delivered and will not refund me. Threatened me with their lawyer.

    The original poster has edited emails, removing references to selling his car, the lost shipment tracking information and other items in order to distort the picture in his favor. This is really about a customer who sold his car and wants to exit a non-refundable transaction. We care about...

    Graziano PN#?

    Hi Jeff, Strongly advise against starting with an r-tronic / e-gear AMT version of the gearbox. There are a lot of differences between the two, and the change to internals required is pretty extensive. Cheaper in the long run to just buy the MT version. Best, John

    C8 engine and transmission

    Scott, This requirement to send a complete car to Italy came out of the blue. We hope this is just a conservative over-reaction, but won’t be able to press on this until August. If that path works, the same TCU we use in the Graziano AMT conversion will be reprogrammed to control the Tremec...

    Ricardo Gearbox platform support

    There are a couple sets of factory tools around. I’d say the experience with common failures is at least as important, though!

    HCF Re-Introduction!

    Hi Brian, That's right - there was a faulty process at the factory with their EB welding equipment/process that caused issues with the 3rd gear synchro clutch during a period of the production run. EB is typically a system used in higher volume plants, which has historically been an extra...

    HCF Re-Introduction!

    Many thanks, Brian! Regarding support for the Ricardo - indeed, we do! We actually just finished a run of custom ratio R&P's (still 8 left from the run) and will have replacement 3rd gears done sometime in February. This gearbox never had any factory parts for it from Ford, and owners have...

    New Tremec TR-9070 DCT in a SLC?

    Won't be able to get from Tremec - they are bound to their contract with Chevy for many years - this will have to be developed standalone.

    New Tremec TR-9070 DCT in a SLC?

    Hi Johan, That's right, the system is ECU-agnostic - it can work with any. The more well-supported ECU's (eg. Motec, GM/Ford OEM, Life Racing, Marelli, Bosch Motorsport, etc) will allow for a cleaner install as we know ECU CANbus signals for those options, but in situations where none of that...

    New Tremec TR-9070 DCT in a SLC?

    Hi Roger - the clutch pedal and master are removed in the system. It’s all controlled by the hydraulic pump and modification of the e-throttle signal.
