We poured over countless transmission options and associated parts and pieces, finally narrowing down the best combination to finish your drivetrain install and really move your project out of the shop and out on to the open road!

This kit features one of Tremec's most notorious transmissions - the T56 Magnum 6 speed manual transmission. This ultra high performance transmission is capable of handling up to 700 ft-lb of torque. A blend of Tremec OEM technology and the best features from the TKO series, the T56 Magnum series of transmissions provides the ultimate in brute strength and the versatility to fit into any high performance build. Features the same multiple shifter locations and dual speedmeter pickups as the TKO series, as well as effortless, short throw shifting capabilities. These performance 6 speeds feature a 2.66 gear ratio with dual overdrive gears for better fuel economy when needed.

This driveline package is provided with everything you will need for a complete and seamless install - clutch kit, flywheel, bell housing, throw out bearing, speedometer and reverse light harness and all the associated hardware.

 Tremec T56 Magnum Transmission

The kingpin of TREMEC's high performance line-up, the Magnum double-overdrive 6-speed transmission takes the very best from TREMEC's current OEM technologies and pairs it with the most popular features of the TKO 5-speed.

Able to withstand a massive 700 lb-ft. of torque while providing unbelievably crisp shifts, no other manual transmission on the planet offers as much combined strength, versatility, and general ease-of-use as the Magnum.

Known in its original equipment form as the 'TR-6060', the Magnum is an aftermarket version of the same transmission found in many of today's most celebrated factory muscle cars – including the Dodge Challenger and Viper, and the Chevrolet Camaro – giving you refinement where you want it and strength where it counts.

  • The aftermarket's premier 6-speed performance manual transmission
  • 700 lb-ft. of torque capacity
  • Reasonably light at 135 lbs. dry
  • Multiple shifter locations & dual speedo pickups for unmatched versatility
  • Choice of two different gear ratio sets (2.66 or 2.97), with unique double overdrive ratios
  • Incredibly short, extremely low-effort shift throws, with crisp, precise engagement
  • Modern OE supercar technology for the ultimate pro-tourers, road-racers, and more

*TREMEC T56 Magnum transmissions can be shifted from two different locations - mid and rear. From the factory they are configured as a rear shift. To change the location, you must purchase a mid shift kit (sold separately). The rear shifter location is then capped off with a plate provided in the kit.

 The following transmission yokes may be needed for installation, depending on your application:

GM LS 6 Bolt Flywheel

RAM billet steel flywheels are recommended as replacements for factory cast flywheels in high performance and racing vehicles. Cast flywheels are not explosion proof and can be dangerous when used in high performance applications at higher RPMs. RAM billet steel flywheels are CNC machined from certified materials and exceed SFI specifications. After machining, the flywheels are blanchard ground parallel to the crankshaft mounting surface ensuring minimum runout and the optimum mating surface for the clutch disc. Use steel flywheels in heavier drag race cars or for the best driveability in street driven vehicles.
