When it comes to the AS68RC, there's virtually nobody building complete units due to the extremely problematic design and inherent malfunction that plagues this transmission.
Naturally, at Next Gen we are unphased by this challenge. The AS68RC is known for rancid pump and valve body issues that often leave cores damaged beyond worth. It is extremely common that cores that are sent in will be damaged beyond their core value because the pumps have been obliterated. Beyond this, once the pumps are damaged, they must be purchased in conjunction with a valve body as they are hydromechanically calibrated to one another, and cost $4,000-$5,000 brand new, hence the high core charge.
We have invested an unmatched level of effort in ensuring this unit is blessed with what it needs to be successful in the rigorous and demanding applications with which the AS68RC is found.
