Quick update on the IDEALG modified clutch mastercylinder- I think it works!

I'm running the Hurst aftermarket shifter (I think about the shortest throw out there- but not necessarily the best one), with the regular DOT#3 brake fluid in the OE hydraulic lines and right now I've got the OE gear oil in the trans. So the new mastercylinder gets the credit. The only other recent change was the NH-SS bushing replacement- which I also recommend because it really tightens up the shift pattern on the Hurst, but I doubt it impacts the 1-2 shift that much.

Today I re-bled it (just to be sure) changed the engine oil and took her out revved the shite out of it! Tried to make it grind- shifted beyond redline and... no noise, no crunch, no nothing.

Now it's still a balky, notchy little PIA tranny. But if I can bang a clean 1-2 shift and squall those back tires for a looong time every now and again, well I might keep it bit longer.

I'll still be watching for an easy swap for the Tremec out of the 1LE say?

I rather replace my tranny with a home built tranny made out of butter and wood. It would definitly hold up better then out POS tranny. The fn grinds make you look like an amateur in front of people when it's really this crappy tranny. Guess it's evident how much I hate this tranny. Oh and it's soo damn notchy, doesn't want to go into first once in a while. Can't wait to replace it completely. Thinking Tr6060

Has anyone attempted to try fitting a tr6060 onto the LLT engine?
Or if they tried and it doesn't fit?

I sent a PM to one of the vendors in the Vendor Tranny section - hopefully will at least start the conversation if not get some needed info. I'll post as soon as I have something.

I was hoping that the new Tremec (TR3060) developed for the new Caddy ATS would work since the ATS is also going to offer the 3.6, but the Motor Trend review said it wasn't that great of a tranny.

Yeah the Jay Leno had the Tremec....I'm sure you can google or youtube the Jay Leno Twin Turbo V6 and find the video. It mentions it, but don't think it gives much in the way of details.

Just read on motortrend that GM is stopping production on all the manual ATS at the moment to hopefully put a fix to that.....so it could still be a possibility!

You know, Jay Leno seems to be a real car guy. So what if we all wrote to him/his show explaining our problem and that we simply want to know what tranny he has on his TTV6 car? If he is a real car guy I see no reason why he wouldn't give us some info.

I am worried that it is not cheap.

Summit has built tr6060s for 2800$ outright. Site had the input shaft spec of 1 1/8" 26 spline. If we can get the input shaft size and some pics of the bell housing might be able to do some measurements.

you mean what tranny or how they got it to work? cause in the video he says tremec 6060. Good idea of asking how they got it to work though...

Might be worth a try, but I doubt he knows how it was really done. Yeah it is the "Jay Leno TTV6 Camaro" but I doubt he had so much input with the car the he knows specically how they got the tremec to work with the V6.

He does not have the car in his collection...it is GM owned and hard to say what GM is doing with it at this point, but it was really nice to see that well after the SEMA show where it debuted, they were still tweaking it and testing with it.

He is definitely a car guy.

Test rode the Auto AWD ATS... Too bad we couldn't get the AWD in our Camaro...

They had NO standard on the lot any where around here...

Look at this post in the V8 and V6 Transmission forum- Poll: Project clutch master cylinder/second gear grind ( 1 2 3 ... Last Page)
IDEALG

The 5th Gen's have a mastercylinder (not really a slave) under the clutch pedal. This member has modified it to provide more volume when depressed and it appears to alleviate the 1-2 shift grind.

Some people are also separating the reservoir for the hydraulics (brakes and clutch) to help keep the fluid cleaner, etc...

I just changed out the m/c and I'm really excited about the improved shifting!!
