This is our version of the Tremec Magnum-F (aka F-Car Magnum)! Needing a transmission ready to bolt right in to your LS1 Camaro or Firebird, but don't make enough power to justify the extra expense of our Level 4 or 5? This Level 3.5 is perfect for you!
This is a COMPLETE Transmission, No Need to send us a Core T56! Price Includes FREE Shipping!
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 3.5 Magnum TR-6060 Conversion, Tick Performance offers you a direct bolt-in to your 98-02 Camaro or Firebird/Trans Am that will safely support up to 700ft/lbs of torque! 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
A standard, box-stock T56 Magnum will not bolt directly into your 98-02 Camaro or Firebird, so we modify miscellaneous components to make this a bolt-in to your LS1 F-Body. Once we finish with your Tick Performance Level 3.5 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. Contact Us 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 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: 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 2-3 days to your turnaround time.
