ATS Diesel Performance

History of ATS Diesel Performance

ATS Diesel Performance began as “Automotive Transmission Specialist” and was founded in 1993 by Clint Cannon. At that time, the company specialized in transmission repair for all types of vehicles. In 1997, the company “Performance Torque Converters”, was founded which allowed them to start doing torque converter rebuilds in house. This allowed for more flexibility to service racing customers.

As time went on, popularity of diesel trucks began to grow, and more people became eager for the power upgrades available for these machines. However, with these upgrades came problems for diesel transmission engines. That’s when Clint decided to do more research & development into a more robust torque converter to address the transmission issues these diesel trucks were having. It was discovered that a clutch pack design was the answer to providing a robust torque converter. With the company developing the TripleLok Torque Converter, and the focus changing to Diesel Performance products, they changed their name to ATS Diesel Performance.


Today, ATS Diesel is rapidly expanding parts for the diesel-powered community. They currently offer high performance transmissions, valve bodies, drivetrain components, fuel pumps, and patented torque converters. Additionally, they offer high performance engine upgrades for Power Stroke, Cummins, and Duramax powered diesel trucks. Lastly, ATS has a full line of products available for RV’s.
