This is a COMPLETE Transmission, No Need to send us a Core T56! Price Includes FREE Shipping!
Once you exceed 750rwtq, you make more power than a traditional T56 transmission can reliably hold. Thanks to Tremec and Tick Performance, there is another option! In an effort to make their new TR-6060 transmission less OEM-specific and more useable for swap applications, Tremec created the T56 Magnum, which combined the easy swapability of the older T-56 with the improved design of the new TR-6060. With our Level 5 SUPER Magnum TR-6060 Conversion, Tick Performance offers you a direct bolt-in to your 98-02 Camaro or Firebird/Trans Am! Some benefits you'll enjoy over a standard T56 transmission include:
- The ability to choose between 2.66 and 2.97 gearsets
- Triple-cone synchronizers on 1-4 gears, along with double-cone synchronizers on Fifth, Sixth and Reverse
- Wider, two-piece laser beam-welded speed gears which feature built-in positive stops to virtually eliminate the possibility of "overthrown" shifts
- Much stronger one-piece countershaft that resists distortion far better than previous designs and uses larger bearings in all critical support areas for increased stability
- Input Shaft features additional material throughout the length of the shaft, increased face width, a larger input bearing, and generously long splines to accommodate twin-disc clutch setups
- Considerably narrower synchronizers that feature fine-pitch tooth angles to effectively decrease the amount of travel necessary for engagement
- Redesigned shift forks featuring integrated "shift keys" to virtually eliminate the possibility of bending shift forks
- Added cross-sectional material on shift forks for increased rigidity and larger shift pads to promote better wear characteristics
When you place your order, we completely tear down the factory T56 Magnum and begin our upgrades that we perform in house. Those upgrades include:
- Modifying miscellaneous components to make this a bolt-in to your LS1 F-Body
- Installing Carbon Blocker Rings on first, third and fourth gears (second gear is already carbon)
- Upgrading all fork pads from plastic to bronze
- Cryogenic Treatment of All Transmission Internals
- Micro Polishing of All Necessary Transmission Internals
- End-play set to our custom specifications
- Professional Reassembly done 100% by hand
- 5 Qts of Fluid
Once we finish with your Tick Performance Level 5 SUPER Magnum TR-6060 Conversion, you'll be able to reuse your stock bellhousing, shifter and all of your stock accessories. We include a custom 31 spline yoke and recommend measuring for proper driveshaft length during the install since so many rear end options are available. We also provide you with a new vehicle speed sensor, reverse lockout solenoid and reverse light switch.
Once your new transmission is installed, contact us about buying your stock T56 core. We rebuild them and we're always looking for cores, so you may be able to recoup some of your investment immediately!
This transmission is designed for 98-02 Camaro or Firebird with LS1 engines only. It will fit into 93-97 Camaro or Firebird with LT1 engines, but will require additional parts for proper function. Call for details.
Option Guide: Which 1-6 Gear Ratio Set do I need?
It truly depends on how you plan to use the car! The 2.66 Gear Ratio set retains the same 1-4 gears as the Stock LS1 F-Body T56 but has slightly more aggressive overdrive gears. The 2.97 Gear Ratio set retains the same overdrive gears as the Stock LS1 F-Body T56 but has slightly more aggressive 1-4 gears. If traction is something you're constantly trying to find, the 2.66 Gear Set will be a bit more forgiving.
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 kit now includes our Hi-Flow Transmission Fluid Pump Kit. This kit will require some plumbing and electrical wiring. This option adds no extra turnaround time.
Option Guide: Should I Upgrade to an Aftermarket Gear Set?
Tick Performance has partnered with PPG to offer the strongest gear sets on the market with our industry leading transmissions. You have the following options for gear sets:
Faceplated 1st-4th (Allows you to retain or delete your 5th & 6th gear)
Synchronized 1st-4th (Allows you to retain your OEM 5th & 6th gear)
Faceplated gear sets are designed for race only applications and not recommended for street use. The faceplated gear sets include the gears, mainshaft, billet shift forks, slider assemblies, and billet interlock & bolts. The synchronized gear sets include only the gears themselves and will reuse the factory synchronizer assemblies, shift forks, mainshaft, and interlock.
The synchronized gear sets are available with the following ratio:
2.437 – 1.611 – 1.228 – 1.000 - .0891 - .080.
The faceplated gear sets are available in the following ratios:
2.148 - 1.561 - 1.228 - 1.000 - .875 - .770
2.437 - 1.611 - 1.228 - 1.000 - .875 - .770
2.589 - 1.841 - 1.352 - 1.000 - .797 - .630
2.946 - 2.071 - 1.438 - 1.000 - .797 - .630
If you are planning to retain your factory 5th & 6th gear the ratio will change as the PPG input ratio is different than OEM. To find your new ratio please use the following formula.
OEM Ratio / 1.161 = Y
Y x 1.381 = New Ratio
Option Guide: Do I want Powdercoating?
This transmission will look brand new when it arrives at you door, but if you're building a show car you may opt for powdercoating, which is much more durable than paint. Available in Black Satin or Silver. This option adds 10-15 days to your turnaround time. NOTE The inlet port for the slave cylinder feed line may need to be clearanced to allow proper seating of the slave cylinder.
