Well, Yeah!!

Of course the Tremec's are built in the US, too. I think...

The gear ratios on the 2007 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500:
1st: 2.97
2nd: 1.78
3rd: 1.30
4th: 1.00
5th: 0.80
6th: 0.63


The gear ratios on the 2008 Pontiac G8 GT:
1st: 3.01
2nd: 2.07
3rd: 1.43
4th: 1.00
5th: 0.84
6th: 0.57


EDIT: I also just read that the TR-6060 will be in the 2008 Corvette and 2009 Dodge Challenger!!!! Aside from this tranny being the modern muscle car tranny, it looks like I am about to start buying stock in Tremec transmissions.
Hmm. Do you wikipedia often? Maybe this TR-6060 is the replacement for the T-56. But as of right now, the T-56 is in the Shelby GT500:

you have to click on the "engine" tab.

Uh Oh you got me...I used wikipedia...for shame!

Anyway I see that it says T-56 for the GT500, but I have read countless articles about the TR 6060 in the GT500.

All you have to do is seach TR 6060 and GT500 in google and you will see. Not just wikipedia articles

Oh, I know that. I did (how do you think I found the wikipedia article? ). But I think this TR-6060 the newer Tremec tranny. The current GT500's still have the T-56, the next ones will have the TR-6060...

Or am I just letting this fly right over my head? Tell me if I'm Wrong, so I can stop. Or play with my head and tell me even if I'm right, I don't care.

It really doesn't matter. The main thing is that this TR-6060 will find itself in a lot of vehicles, and generally speaking that will be a good thing I think.

So I would imagine that the TR-6060 will also be the manual option for the V8 Camaro, based on the wide use of it in other high powered V8 cars.
