The kingpin of TREMEC’s high performance line-up, the T-56 Magnum double-overdrive 6-speed transmission takes the very best from TREMEC’s current OEM technologies and pairs it with the most popular features of the TKO 5-speed.
Able to withstand a massive 700 lb-ft. of torque while providing unbelievably crisp shifts, no other manual transmission on the planet offers as much combined strength, versatility, and general ease-of-use as the T-56 Magnum.
Known in its original equipment form as the ‘TR-6060’, the Magnum is an aftermarket version of the same transmission found in many of today’s most celebrated factory super cars – including the ZR1 Corvette and ACR Viper – giving you refinement where you want it and strength where it counts. The Magnum has 3 key differences from the TR6060 that don’t compromise on strength or smoothness – instead, they simply make it easier to retrofit, and they are:
1 – Three different shifter positions, giving you flexibility to move the shift lever front to back across a 7.7″ range. And we can help you move it around even more, contact us for details. The included shifter (the red one with “Tremec” in silver) can be flipped 180 degrees, putting the shift lever stub either 23.0″ or 26.6″ from the back of your block. Available separately is a mid-shift conversion, which puts the shift lever stub 18.9″ from the back of your block. We’ve included some photos with the forward most and rearward most shifter locations.
2 – Mechanical and electric speedometer outputs, making it easy to hook up to any vehicle. We can set you up with just the right parts you need, including mechanical speedometer gears, electric speedometer harnesses, and speedometers for your dash.
3 – Designed for a slip yoke. The TR6060 is used with independent rear suspensions, in which the driveshaft doesn’t move up and down with the rear axle, and is therefore axially fixed.
We can help you hook this transmission up to just about anything – LSx, small or big block Chevy, Ford, or Chrysler, Toyota 2JZ, etc. We are a dealer for Quick Time bellhousings as well as many others.
In some of these pictures we’ve included a shift lever, shift knob, aftermarket shifter (the red and gold ones), and/or a throwout bearing – none of these are included, but of course they are available separately.
We manufacture low profile shifters and can relocate your shifter in a pretty large area – contact us for details.
