Sonnax offers complete GM Powerglide planetary assemblies in a variety of gear set options and configurations to ensure you get the performance you want without overpaying or sacrificing quality. Each comes fully assembled and ready to install.
Track-proven to 3,000 HP, Sonnax Extreme planetaries are the finest quality Powerglide planetary assemblies in the world. From carrier and output shaft to gears and thrust washers, every component is refined for maximum durability in the most demanding applications. The ring gears are even pre-drilled for the Sonnax stabilizer system to prevent vibration and broken reverse friction plates. Extreme gear sets feature Sonnax premium sun and pinion gears that also undergo the same advanced processing used in Formula 1™, NASCAR® and other high-end professional racing circuits.
1.58 ratio Extreme planetary assembly kit 28158G-06SP delivers tunable control right at the start, when traction can make or break a race. The one-of-a-kind Sonnax 1.58 is designed to fit into existing Powerglide cases, allowing racers to achieve the lowest numerical ratio available for the Powerglide without the hassle and expense of converting to a TH400.

The mere fact that we didn’t have to invest a huge sum of money into building a transmission is one of the biggest benefits…and it goes without saying that the new 1.58 gear set has far exceeded our expectations. It has given us the ability to keep the front end on the ground, consistent A-B passes…and the confidence that we have gained with the reliability and consistency of the gear set is priceless.C.
