We offer this upgrade path as many of our customers continue to want this only, even though it may not always be the best option.
NOTE: If your SST is:
Many customers, and repair shops, guess that you must need a clutch upgrade to cure the problems above. 90% of the time that's not the case and you will have expensive aftermarket clutches installed for nothing! Again, please consider the true and complete full rebuild found HERE
The SST / DCT470 Clutch Upgrade Service Includes:
We very highly recommend that your SST has any issues, that you opt for the full repair service instead. That service addresses all issues with the SST. Plus with our full service, you have the option of clutch upgrades and also includes a full 14 month warranty! If we perform the clutch upgrades only, the transmission could fail again in short time due to other weak links in the unit which have not been addressed.
The best way to explain: when upgrading the clutches 'only' we are not touching the transmission portion of the SST. The SST has a clutch section and a transmission section all in one case. When you replace the clutches, you are not touching the transmission area of the unit. That is the same as taking your manual transmission vehicle to a clutch shop and having them replace just the clutch. They are not servicing the transmission, only replacing your clutch. They will not warranty your transmission for a clutch replacement service, and neither will we for the SST. Please keep this in mind when choosing just a clutch upgrade service.
We know these units intimately and do NOT require you to ship your entire vehicle to us for upgrades. Need assistance getting your transmission or vehicle here? We make the process easy. Please contact us for more info about shipping options!

|Cleaning Disclaimer||<p>Parts cleaned using industrial parts washers. Exceptionally clean units are one of the many reasons why our Transmissions and Transfer Case assemblies are of the highest quality in the business! We have <a href="news/technical-articles/687-cleaning-equipment">state-of-the-art cleaning equipment</a> which other trans builders and service shops could only dream of.</p> <p>With the best cleaning equipment, we also have a very clean facility. All units are built in a spotless environment using tools, and benches, which are clean and only used for assembly purposes. In other words, the same tools used to pull your dirty old transmission out of your car are NOT the same tools used to rebuild your pristine unit afterward. Take a look at the typical shop and check their tools. It is shocking how dirty things are in most shops and that dirt will end up in your unit. That does not happen here.</p> <p>Jacks Transmissions has grown into a company which now services exotic and terribly complex DCT (dual clutch transmissions) used in the GTR, SST, Porsche PDK, Audi, VW, and many more high end vehicles. Due to this exciting change, we have spent a lot of money for the state-of-the-art equipment. We have also designed and built many of our own parts for these vehicles.</p> <p>All machine work, cleaning, and detail work is performed in-house by very talented technicians and engineers. The quality you get from Jacks Transmissions is an unbelievable bargain. We do not know of anyone else who cleans the transmission via a 110gal Ultrasonic and Pulse-Jet unit, or who employs such talented people. </p> <p>The quality and experience you get from Jacks Transmissions shows with the overwhelming number of high-end vehicles we service in our shop. Be a part of the rare opportunity to have one of the cleanest and most experienced specialty shops in the World service your transmission! </p> <p>We love the Mitsubishi transmission and have not forgotten that it is these units which got us to where we are today. We will continue to service them as we want to continue to support the community. This is a great opportunity for the Mitsubishi enthusiast to have a build using the same high-end equipment to service the Mitsubishi transmission as we use for the expensive exotic units. This means that the cleanliness and attention to detail is unmatched! </p> <p>Our pricing structure was created to assure only the highest quality materials and workmanship. Anyone which beats our price is taking short-cuts which you will pay for in the end. Look into the details of our build services and you will see the additional attention we provide which is unique and cannot be duplicated.</p>|
|Technical Info||<h3>Additional Information :</h3> <ul> <li>If someone uses anything other than the factory DCT fluid from Mitsubishi in the trans (or an approved DCT fluid), the protective gel inside the trans valve-body (mechatronic assembly) could become damaged and conductive. This will cause a series of odd issues within the transmission as the TCU will not be able to operate properly. If your valve body is bad, it will need to be replaced as we have been unable to find a way to replace the gel at this time.</li> <li>The clutch damper can become damaged due to many reasons. Lately we have seen so many worn and damaged dampers that it has become a bit of an epidemic here. 99 out of every 100 SST units we see have broken or weak springs in the damper. If yours has broken springs, do not fret as we offer a rebuild / upgrade over the OEM damper assembly! We have spent a lot of time in R&D and have developed a much more reliable spring setup which is stronger and will outlast the OEM dampers. This service is available for an additional charge.</li> <li>Although not required, we recommend installing a transmission cooler with any upgraded clutch pack.</li> </ul> <p>We go above and beyond to ensure your transmission will perform better than new. We know these units intimately and do NOT require you to ship your entire vehicle to us for the service. Need assistance getting your transmission or vehicle here? We make the process easy. Please <a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">contact us</a> for more info about shipping options! </p> <p>Additional technical info about your SST can be found <a href="http://www.jackstransmissions.com/pages/sst-how-it-works-problems-upgrades">HERE</a></p> <h4>HEAVILY WORN OR DAMAGED UNITS</h4> <p>Any additional parts needed which are not listed or not part of this build will cost extra to replace. We will email pictures and detailed information if this is the case. We know you do not like surprises, so we try to make this process as painless as possible. If this turns out to be the case, though, please keep in mind that we just want you to have a high quality built assembly. Having your vehicle down is bad enough, so why cut corners and risk it again? Quality is the key here and sometimes it costs more to do this on a specialty or aging platform. Simply put, it is not worth the risk of using a sub-par component if an inspection reveals it is a weak link. </p> <h4>ATTENTION TO DETAIL</H4> <p>All machine work and cleaning is performed in-house. We also spend a lot of time on synchro timing, alignment and operation to give you the best shift possible.

Most assemblies are shipped in a double walled custom made box. Your assembly will be sitting snugly, and safely, in preformed foam pads to assure safe delivery. </p> <p style="text-align: left;"><img alt="" src="images/Product_Desc/DSC05481_medium.jpg" /> </p> <p> In certain situations, though, we may need ship via a freight pallet.
