I purchased my custom transmission from Earl & Frank after reviewing his items on e bay. I was steered away from purchasing on e bay where he could be rated. he seemed honest and competent and I wanted a custom heavy duty transmission built. The transmission was two months late getting to me -- secretary, moving, lost dog excuses but it did show up eventually. I had a professional shop install the transmission and followed the warranty criteria to the T. The transmission was faulty from the start. I finally had to park the truck and wait for a replacement transmission that they promised to ship starting back in October of 2010. I was told many times by Frank the owner, John the supervisor, and Amber the secreatary "It's in route to you Mr. Harris", "Your next on the board Mr. Harris" since it took so long the first time I gave them the benefit of the doubt. That was rediculous here it is the end of April and now they won't answer the phone -- so many untrue promises I'm flabbergasted at the bald face lies. This is no way to run a business - the first and only bad e-bay experience I have ever had. The Better Bussiness Burea of Florida got them to respond in that they said they were in touch with me and shipping my replacement transmission soon. May is ending they now they never answer the phone and no transmission has shown up. I have recieved numerous e from folks with similar experiences with the company appartently they have quite the track record of fraudlent sales consisting of poor products. Here are companies and names of individuals to use care while dealing with. NXT Level Transmission, Durabuild Plus Inc, Tranzmissionworks, OE Remanufacturing, Applied Powertrain, 1KO Performance, Trans World Warehouse, Advance Automatic Transmissions. Some of the associated names i have been given and have been forwarded are Earl Luckett, Dan Diel, Chris Owen, Cord, Frank, John, Amber or Mike McGraw.

I am in the same predicament. I actually bought the transmission on Ebay but didn't open a case against him since he provided tracking information. we are now waiting on the 3rd transmission to arrive. Amber stated it was enroute to me, according to her email correspondence. That was may 23rd, still no call, no email, no tracking number, and now the voice mail is full. I have a transmission that I can't use.

I have had the same experiences with them. Amber is the worst secretary I have ever experienced. The transmission was 3 weeks late, sent the wrong warranty papers, oil cooler advertised with transmission wasn't sent, paid extra for an upgraded oil pan with a drain plug, instead received a used oil pan with a $15.00 plug kit installed that leaks. Applied powertrain has a F rating with BBB. Frank and Johnathan seem to be nice on the phone and apologize for the issues but no follow through. Kevin is an idiot, he will argue with you on the phone and try to make it your fault. They don't answer the phones because they screen there calls by caller Id. If you are a new person that has an unrecognizable phone number, they will answer. I am very attempted to jump on the plane and show up in person. It will not be pretty.

Everybody that has had any problems or complaints about this company needs to go to and file a complaint. There business license number is MV81600 and Franks cell phone number is 407-727-0232. I also have there corporation information and the owners home address. I will fix these guys one way or another.
