Our Level Three Viperized Rebuild is the perfect choice for those of you making 750RWTQ or less and wanting a transmission that you can abuse without worry!
This complete price includes Parts, Labor AND Free Shipping on your T56 (both ways!)
Our Level Three Viperized 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 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 the Cobra Overdrive Ratios?
Many of our Camaro & Firebird customers aren't satisfied with the generous 5th (0.74:1) and 6th (0.50:1) gear ratios that GM specified on the stock T56 Transmission. For those customers, we offer a Cobra Overdrive Upgrade as part of our Level 3 Viperized T56 Rebuild that offers a more usable 5th (0.79:1) and 6th (0.63:1) gear ratio set. Not available for any rebuild except Level 3. 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.
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 Three warranty is null and void when used in setups making higher than 750ft/lbs of torque (rear-wheel). Faceplated transmissions are not warrantied. Due to their weaker design, 1993 T56 Transmissions are not warrantied.
