TREMEC TUET11009 GM LS T56 Magnum 6-Speed Manual Transmission
T56, 6-Speed Transmission Speeds, 700 ft./lbs. Torque, 26 Input Shaft Spline Count
Since debuting in Dodge's ultra exotic Viper sports car in 1992, the T-56 6-speed manual transmission has become one of the most celebrated manual transmissions ever to hit the automotive industry. A highly versatile, smooth-shifting brute of a gearbox, it has repeatedly proven its worth in a variety of factory supercars, as well as in its racing efforts all around the globe. The Tremec T56 Magnum (a beefed version of the original T-56) offers true double-overdrive for the ultimate blend of performance and unbelievable fuel economy. The Tremec T-56 Magnum is a modern day favorite at an exceptional value. The T56 Magnum is an aftermarket version of the "TR-6060" transmission found in many of today's most celebrated factory super cars – including the ZR1 Corvette and ACR Viper – giving you refinement where you want it and strength where it counts.
