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?
ON NATIONAL BACKORDER CALL FOR CURRENT AVAILABILITY
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 get Micro Polish?
Tick Performance Micropolishing consists of rotating a part at relatively slow speeds. As the part rotates through the machine, non-abrasive media makes contact on all surfaces of the part. At Tick Performance, our Micropolishing has two processes. The first process introduces a cutting solution into the media. The cutting solution very slowly smooths the surface of the part from the gentle wiping of our non-abrasive media. The second process is the polishing itself that utilizes a different type of solution. This solution acts as a varnish that makes the metal part look like it has a chrome finish. The Tick Performance Micropolishing adds horsepower gains, achieving higher RPMs while simultaneously lowering operating temperatures and adding longer service life.
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: Billet Front Plate
Include the Tick Performance Billet Front plate and save $200. The front plate is $50 when combined with a rebuild like this one, and includes a much-improved bung and sprayer design ($150 value). The sprayer consisted of a machined and welded bar that extrudes into the transmission, coating 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gears more evenly with oil.
· Improved Bungs and Sprayer system coats 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears in oil
· Improved rigidity, better gear mesh, and engagement
· O-ring sealing for a leak-proof design
· Can be used with either T56 or Magnums (includes necessary adapters)
The Tick Performance Billet Front Plate for T56 and T56 Magnums is machined here in house in Mount Airy, North Carolina. The billet design vastly improves strength, which decreases gear deflection and enhances performance.
In our testing, we’ve found better gear engagement and improved gear wear patterns. It handles torque deflection better, too, improving the life of your transmission. See the dropdown menu to add it to your build. T56 transmissions require an additional bearing ($39.99). The billet plate pricing includes the Tick Performance Hi-Flow Trans Pump kit (with filter and fittings).
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 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 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.<p><b>UPDATE 8/23/17:</b> 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.
