Our Level One Standard Rebuild is the perfect choice for those of you making 450RWTQ or less in your 93-02 Camaro or Firebird/Trans Am and not wanting to break the bank on a T56 Rebuild!
This complete price includes Parts, Labor AND Free Shipping on your T56 (both ways!)
Our Level One Standard Rebuild includes the following:
Option Guide: Do I need New Bearings?
Although they’re not included with our rebuild packages, we consider bearings a smart thing to do for everyone and a must do for those of you with more than 120,000 miles on the clock. If you’ve had any strange noises coming from your transmission, bearings are a wise investment. We use Timken and Koyo Bearings. This option adds no extra turnaround time.
Option Guide: Should I Upgrade to the Viper 2nd Gear?
STRONGLY suggested for all pre-2000 model six speed transmissions equipped with the non-Viper gear, which is the weakest gear inside your T56! Starting in 2000, all T56 Transmissions came equipped with the Viper Style 2nd Gear, which features longer engagement teeth, making it much stronger. A very wise option for your pre-2000 F-Body! This option adds no extra turnaround time.
Option Guide: Do I need the Steel 3-4 Shift Fork?
Like the Viper 2nd Gear, the Steel 3-4 Shift Fork is STRONGLY suggested for all pre-2000 model six speed transmissions equipped with the Aluminum fork, which is the a very weak link inside your T56! Starting in 2000, all T56 Transmissions came equipped with the Steel 3-4 Shift Fork, which is much stronger than the bend-and-break prone Aluminum fork. This option adds no extra turnaround time.
Option Guide: Should I Upgrade to the Viper Mainshaft?
If you need to support slightly more power than the 450ft/lbs (rear wheel) that the Level One is rated for, upgrading to a Viper Mainshaft as part of this rebuild will increase the torque rating of your transmission to 550ft/lbs (rear wheel.) This option buys you our Custom-length Viper 30-spline Mainshaft, Modified Speedometer Wheel, Viper-sized Output Shaft Bushing, Viper-sized Output Shaft Seal, Yoke, and the custom machining and installation necessary. This option adds 2-3 days to your turnaround time.
Option Guide: Should I have my transmission Painted or Powdercoated?
During any rebuild here at Tick Performance, all transmission cases are washed and degreased. Even after this treatment, many are stained, discolored and just don’t look as good as they did when new. Our media blast and paint service gives the transmission a much more professional, finished look. Available in Black Satin or Silver. This option adds no extra turnaround time. You can also opt for our powdercoating service, which is much more durable than paint. Also available in Black Satin or Silver. This option adds 2-3 days to your turnaround time.
Option Guide: Should I have the Bungs & Sprayers Installed?
It is seen time and time again in big horsepower cars that do standing mile or high speed pulls often, and road race or autocross applications; the input shaft bearing can become starved for fluid and fail, causing a chain reaction of damage inside the transmission. With this option, we install and weld bungs and spray tubes inside your transmission that will direct transmission fluid onto your input shaft and third gear teeth that are prone to failure. This is not a complete kit, as you will need to provide and plumb your own fluid pump, filter, cooler and lines. We do not offer a complete kit at this time. This option adds no extra turnaround time.
Option Guide: Should I opt for Faceplating?
If you drive your car on the street, no. Suggested for all manually shifted dedicated racecars ONLY, faceplating is a procedure very similar to proshifting, but much more durable and longer lasting. Faceplating completely eliminates the possibility of missing a shift by removing the stock synchronizers and opening up the engagement window for faster, higher rpm shifting. This is definitely the way to go if you have a T56 in your racecar and you're looking for the quickest shifts possible. Due to the harsh nature of this process, we do not recommend this option for cars that see any street driving. For more information, click here or click here to watch a video of a customer of ours driving his Faceplated Trans Am. This option adds 4-5 weeks to your turnaround time.
Option Guide: Should I opt for Expedited Service (24 Hour Turnaround?)
If you're in a crunch for time, yes! Our Expedited Service option guarantees that your transmission will be shipped on it's way back to you the business day AFTER we receive it. This is perfect for those of you having a smaller garage remove & reinstall your transmission who can't have your car on their lift for a lengthy amount of time. Contact Us for Transit Time Estimates if you'd like to know how long Ground Shipping on your transmission will take. Not available with any additional option that will delay your turnaround time.
All Tick Performance rebuilt transmissions are covered by an industry leading 12 Month Unlimited Mileage Warranty! We guarantee that our labor performed on your transmission is done correctly and was checked and rechecked before we cleared your transmission for shipping back to you. Since our transmission rebuild packages are designed for use in high abuse racing applications, our warranty covers our labor to disassemble and reassemble your transmission only. Our warranty does not include broken or damaged parts, costs to remove transmission from and reinstall transmission into your vehicle, fluids, or shipping either to or from our location.
UPDATE 8/23/17: As OEM replacement T56 Parts become more scarce, we are forced to use aftermarket replacement parts. While quality of these aftermarket parts is generally high, we have seen instances where these parts are louder or more noticeable once installed. Since they are the only available option, our warranty does not cover these irritations. Our Level One warranty is null and void when used in setups making higher than 450ft/lbs of torque (rear-wheel). Faceplated transmissions are not warranted. Due to their weaker design, 1993 T56 Transmissions are not warrantied.

I'm fairly certain that my F-Body will break before this transmission does. The instructions that came along with it were clear and concise, leaving no room for question or misunderstanding. As an aviation mechanic my bread and butter is on TMs and publications, so this was a nice change from the usual "just don't beat the crap out of it for the first few hundred miles" that many shops are happy to tell you.
Tick was EXCEPTIONALLY FAST, and they were very pliable to my time constraints; their customer service is top notch. As a member of the Army, all SMs know that timelines can make or break a build being completed in 5 days or 9 months.
I've already ordered a driveshaft and the rest of the plans are on the way. Tick has a customer for the lifetime of my Z28, and for every one that follows her.

The trans was locking in 4th and not always shifting into 3rd/4th, and had 100k miles + 18years old on it so felt a little sluggish now it feels like a new transmission. I love my t56 and would't go anywhere else. Came back to me looking new and shipping was a breeze, with shipping and repair turn around was not even a week. I highly recommend Tick Performance A+++ and amazing CS aswell...

The rebuild went as smooth as expected; the trans was returned in a timely fashion and the tech even called me to answer some questions I had. No mysteries along the way and no wondering how long it'd take. Tick delivered an excellent product in a professional manner- what else can you ask for? Highly recommended.

This tranny rebuild with monsters stg2 clutch kit is a real winner...do exactly what they say in both tranny and clutch break-in and you'll have no ssues whatsoever (i highly recommend ticks master) its a must.a simple thing that can save you huge when the stock fails do to more pressure needed for stronger pressure plates...i love the new set-up..when you break in the tranny be sure to only up/down shift 1 gear at a time try not to skip shifts as all the components are brand new and need time to work-in.all said i am very pleased a great company with high values and JOEY was an amazin help along with MIKE
