Transmission Problems

The camaro SS uses a TR6060 and there have been reports of problems with the transmission that I am sure most members here are aware of especially with high rpm shifting.

The TR6060 is also used on the GT500 and Challenger and on their forums you can see issues with high rpm shifting as well. No surprise there are it's fundamentally the same transmission.

Thing is on the V6 camaros they use a different transmission made in japan, but they also report problems with the transmissions and shifting.

The Mustang GT uses a Getrag MT82 made in China and again there are reports of transmission problems with grinding gears and popping out of gear.

So we has a Tremec TR6060 Made in Mexico with problems on the camaro ss, GT500, and Challenger.

We have an Aisin Made in Japan with problems on the camaro v6.

We have a Getrag MT82 Made in China with problems on the mustang GT and maybe even on the boss 302 and boss 302 ls?

What gives? What has changed in transmission construction or technology? 3 different companies. 3 different transmissions. 3 different places of assembly and they all seem to have some problem with grinding gears and popping out of gear.

cars have a lot of HP these days...and people like to beat the piss out of their cars. Bad combination for stock transmissions unfortunately.
