What’s New From Hughes Performance……
Hughes Performance is proud to announce the introduction of the XP5 lock-up Powerglide transmission and torque converter package. The XP5 is the newest generation and most innovative Powerglide racing transmission currently available throughout the entire aftermarket. This uniquely engineered Powerglide features custom hydraulic lock-up circuitry and a specially designed lock-up torque converter, all of which is activated by a 12-volt solenoid located inside of the transmission for fully integrated and seamless operation. Racers can now have the best of both worlds… the torque multiplying advantages of a torque converter with the efficiency of a clutch, and all in the lighter weight lower drag Powerglide format. With a horsepower compatibility rating exceeding 3,000 horsepower, the XP5 is the strongest Powerglide racing transmission available anywhere. This transmission is based on our proven Pro Mod-design XP4 transmission, which was responsible for putting the power down to the tires in the first ever 3-second nitrous Pro Mod car, and is currently in use by multiple Pro Mod, Top Sportsman, ADRL Pro Nitrous, and Outlaw 10.5 teams. The XP5 is suitable and recommended for use in any extreme duty application looking for a significant performance advantage over conventional Powerglide designs, converter drive units, or clutch-equipped units.
