They probably realized what a POS the other one was, and started using the strong one. Makes sense.

Okay. The 2LT models come standard in manual and will be available in automatic. Production for the 2014 models is to begin on 7/15/13.
15:56:26Customer:do you know who makes the transmission weather its aisin or tremec or do you know the rpo code?
15:56:54Matt:Let me look into that for you.
15:57:27Matt:I show that the transmission will be the Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual.
15:57:52Customer:same one as in a SS model?
15:57:53Matt:The RPO code is MN6.
15:58:06Matt:Correct.
15:58:09Customer:WOW!!!!


this is what the chevy rep said on an online chat...

You have been misinformed. The MN6 denotes that the vehicle is a manual NOT what ratio the vehicle has. MG9, MM6 and M10 are the Tremec TR6060 ratios used in the C5 Camaros.


6-speed manual transmission
For maximum control, the 6-speed manual transmission puts the impressive power and torque of Camaro® at your command. On the 1LS and LT models, the Aisin® AY6 unit has a very aggressive first gear ratio (4.48:1) for exceptionally strong launches. On the SS and ZL1™, the Tremec® TR6060 transmission is designed to manage the high-torque characteristics of the super-muscular, 6.2L V8 with outstanding smoothness. The ZL1 version features increased torque capacity than SS and is tuned for smooth and precise shifts. And if you like pushing your machine to] the limit, you'll love Launch Control, which comes standard on every V8 Camaro with manual transmission. It's a form of traction control to manage wheel spin intelligently to give you awesome off-the-line acceleration.

I disagree. the ratios dont correspond with the AY6 ratios. The 14 is supposed to come with the 6060.

See what 2014v6 posted above. He copied and paste MG9. That's NOT a V6 RPO code. MG9 is the RPO code for ZL1 TR6060 ratio.

Tell me what trans comes in the V6 according to GM's ordering guide for 2014. Thanks

If you still want to be difficult, you're free to reference the 2013 ordering guide and make a good note of the fact that the V6 had a seperate RPO listed for its transmission. That is no longer the case.

Really guys? We end up having this same argument every year about the same RPO code. And they still came from the factory with the Aisin AY6 transmissions. The same RPO MN6 has been used for manual transmissions 2010-2014 Model year cars, with each having its own such as MG9 or AY6 to signify what trans it actually has. Just the same as each auto car is MX0 RPO.
