T-56 tranny

My 2010 camaro is going to be about 700whp once im done with it, and recently i saw a 736whp mustang with a t6060 in it. I was just wondering how long you think the t6060 will be able to hold all that power or could a viper spec t-56 or t-56 magnum work better and also fit in the camaro?

i'd say if you're going for that kind of power, get a zr1 spec tr6060 or get a richmond

t6060 > t56.

You might need to have the 6060 built to handle the power, but it is stronger than a t56. Might want to do some research and see how these things work before you go throwing money at it...

The 6060 has larger gears and more torque capacity.


It is what they are installing in the higher horspower cars.

HI Robin, thanks for the info..

Are there any internal differences between the 6060 that come in these cars?

Thanks!

I would go with a Viper built T56. Cheaper and proven to hold all the power you can give it.

The 6060 is supposed to be "better" than the T56, but right now it does not seem to be the case. Once Tremec irons out the issue(s) with the new synchros, then the benefits of the smoother shifting, higher torque rating, etc. will put it in the top spot. I still sort of hate that manufacturers seem to have to come out with something "better" when it's not really necessary. I believe you can build up a really nice T56 that will still cost a good bit less than a 6060.

Sure, a T56 will fit...one way or another If you want to know whether it will be a direct bolt-in swap, then you might want to call Tremec. They might have a "beefed" up version of the TR6060 in development or available that should be a direct fit in every respect. The top photo is a T56 and the one below it is a TR6060. As you can see, the shifter location of the TR6060 looks to be a couple of inches in front of the T56 and the tranny looks like it's about 3-5" longer.




The following is out of "Hot Rod" magazine:

"T56 Magnum Tremec
www.ttcautomotive.com

Tremec's new T56 is a T56 six-speed on steroids. The Magnum ups the ante with more preicse shifts and a stronger case,gears, guts, and output shaft to increase the power handling to 700Lb-ft. Rather than forging the gears and clutching teeth all as one unit, for the Magnum, Tremec laser-welded the two together for a much more intricate design of the teeth. On top of that, the Magnum is physically narrower and equipped with wider gears as well as some extra meat to the front and rear of the main case. The T56 magnum will be available in configurations for 4.6 and 5.0 Fords, LS-series engines, and small block Chevys, but custom bellhousings for other applications will be available through most distributors.
Price: $3,000.00"

it all depends on how you use it. If you're going to do a lot of speed-shifting and/or hard lauches w/ slicks or DR's...your transmission's demise will be sooner rather than later. When it does blow, make sure you spend the $$$$ and get it beefed up.

also im sure twin screws are hard on the transmission from all the low end torque, so should i just beef up my 6060 or get a viper spec or magnum t-56?

it really depends on if you'll be able to hook up...hard launches w/ good traction is what will break things. I would contact some performance transmission builders and see what they say...that's going to be the most educated answers you'll be able to get. Not sure there's a t-56 that'll swap directly in yet...probably your best bet is to have a bullet-proof 6060 built by someone who REALLY knows what they are doing. AND, while you're at it, might want to get stronger axles as well.

i found cv joints that will hold 1000hp so the rear should be good. Do you recommend any transmission guys?
