Title: *NEW* T56 Magnum (TR6060) 6speeds for sale! $3195
Post by: gnx7 on April 17, 2012, 05:36:30 PM
Please PM me if you are interested in the new Magnum T56's which are the latest 6speeds out for a reasonable price designed as a replacement part for the '98-02 style Fbodies and Hot Rod projects.  Instead of sourcing a used unknown condition T56 and eventually having to rebuild it... you can start out with a better and stronger unit from the beginning... plus it is brand new!  The main attraction is that the gears are wider than stock made of a stronger material, bearings are larger supporting higher loads, rails/shafts are also made of stronger materials, a 31 spline output shaft, beefier case with more reinforcement, 3 shifter locations available by removing cover plates, and also 2 types of speedo pickups (electronic signal + mechanical).  They include all sensors, can be used with either an electronic or mechanical speedo and have many other great features.  They do not include a bellhousing; however one can be purchased and I sell factory style plus SFi steel safety version.  Works with GTO or Fbody LS style bellhousing.  Fbody preferred due to better starter options that fit (cheaper).

The trans also features cast in bosses for a gear sprayer pump/oil cooler if needed. The old T56 unit has no pump provision and under very high power the oil would migrate to the rear of the transmission allowing for excessive heat buildup in the front section (under drag racing/highway pulls) where oil is lacking in the proper quantity. The input and countershaft gears would fail under high load.  The new TR6060 design allows you to spray up front on the gears where they need the cooling/buffer in extreme conditions.

This unit is essentially a new TR6060 Tremec transmission (available in the 2008+ Z06 and ZR1 plus the 2010+ Camaro, Viper, Challenger etc.) and has been available since 2011 in this custom configuration.  Similar to the one which is found in the 2010+ Camaro mounted directly behind the engine; however it doesn't have a remote style shifter as it was designed as a replacement for the Fbody Camaro unit as stated.   It has a standard style 31 splined output shaft (larger than the Viper unit and also made of stronger material).  Being a clean slate design it has addressed many of the shortcomings the 4th gen Fbody transmission has under aggressive and extreme driving conditions.  It is the premier 6 speed of choice for the consumer shopping for a reliable, smooth shifting, quiet, and strong transmission.

Incorporating the new TR6060 style front bearing plate with a removable bellhousing provision (factory TR6060 5th gen Camaro has a fixed bellhousing/bearing plate as 1 unit) it offers plenty of options for the consumer.  This will allow the use of an aftermarket Quicktime style SFI steel bellhousing and stock style bellhousings supporting LT or LS engines as well.

This tailhousing is 1.9" longer than an Fbody/GTO and Tremec made the shifter centerline a few inches forward in comparison to the 4th gen Fbody shifter location.  The solution is to run a shifter option/handles/sticks to put it where you need it and the shifter can be located where you want it. This also means you need a slightly shorter driveshaft with the proper spline count (31 spline) on the yoke side.  There are a number of shifter options to put it where you need it centered in your transmission tunnel opening.  NorCal Auto Group offers one that works well and is easily customizable! We use it on our gray shop LS7 FD.

It is miles better than an FBody/GTO T56 trans (designed in the early 90's) in terms of strength and is smoother shifting, eliminates the key system, has the same gear ratios as the Fbody T56 (2.66 1st and same 2nd-4th) however it has a closer .80 5th and .63 6th ratio to keep you in the powerband when shifting from 4th-5th for high speed use.  The closer 5th gear ratio, increased strength, and smoother shifting are huge bonuses.  In a lightweight and high HP RX-7 the stock 1-4 Fbody gearing is perfect for putting down the power.

As mentioned the gear faces themselves are also wider and made of a better quality steel, larger bearings allow
it to handle higher loads before deflection, the shafts are forged from a better material and the mainshaft/output shaft is 31 spline vs. 27 spline. A non Magnum T56 has many shortcomings from the factory as better parts were developed over time which can be added during a rebuild.... but even after doing so the new Magnum T56 is still leaps and bounds stronger and offers smoother shifting that can never be matched by an older 4th gen style T56.  The input shaft spline count remains the same so you can retain your current clutch combo. 

The stock T56 seems to have a limit of around 600rwhp in heavier cars before the output shaft breaks or gears break.  The Magnum T56 (TR6060) is closer to 900-1000rwhp+. They rate it for less (700) in a 4500lb+ car launching on slicks with no failures repeatedly.  Any manual transmission with enough abuse is not immune from breakage.  That being said I'm pushing 1400hp/1400 ft/lbs torque thru a STOCK T56 Magnum and McLeod HD1200 RXT twin disc clutch that is fully streetable and no issues. 

How the TREMECģ T-56 MAGNUM 6-Speed is improved.

That link above is not me; however it is a good read... if you are interested in one please PM or email me (contact info provided at the bottom of this thread). Can ship worldwide.

If it tells you anything... I removed a built zero mile 4th gen FBody T56 from my LS7 powered FD to install a new Magnum.  It also allowed me check fitment issues as the case itself is a bit beefier and appears to be slightly wider towards the tailshaft area.  Fitment issues were nill.... and it bolts right in.  The rubber/poly mount even remains in the same location.  Main differences over a 4th gen Fbody T56 is the driveshaft yoke spline count (now 31 spline), shifter location (needs the DMshifter to move it 4" rearward), and last but not least the length (shorter).

We use a TR6060 (internally identical to T56 Magnum) in our LS6 car, ever since driving Conrad Grunewald's 2010 Camaro (Formula Drift) I knew I had to have one.  Heads and shoulders above the T56 in feel, power handling, and gear ratios, plus with the T56 Magnum you have so many shifter options it's ridiculous.

There's an LSx bellhousing that'll bolt right up with any LSx engine, but people coming from T56's will need to do new trans mounts.  No big deal, totally worth it.

This is a good price, I think Mark's selling them for the same price I buy them for wholesale!  :cheers:

Hey Mark, long time no talk buddy!  I just stuck the Magnum in my FD (MotoIQ Project V8 RX-7) and it is so much nicer than the T-56 I had on the LS1 before (of which i had to replace a broken shifter key). 

There were a couple things i had to fix to make the shifter work but the only real PITA with the Magnum was the shifter positioning.. The tailshaft IS longer, so I ended up having to shorten my driveshaft, but the shifter housing is farther forward than on the regular T-56--so I had to have a custom offset shifter made.  Wait till you see it, it's DOPE :)  AND I'm pretty sure the guys that made it for me are going to be able to produce it for the general public--otherwise you'd have to use a real long offset shift arm that might make for a weird throw.

The connectors on the Magnum are all Ford too, so I had to buy new pigtails for the VSS, reverse lockout and reverse lights, but that's easy and already up in part 7 of the project series with part numbers if you're interested: http://www.motoiq.com/magazine_articles/id/2275/project-v8-rx-7-part-7--bringing-the-e-rod-ls3-to-life-almost.aspx (http://www.motoiq.com/magazine_articles/id/2275/project-v8-rx-7-part-7--bringing-the-e-rod-ls3-to-life-almost.aspx)

The tranny mount has gotta be pretty much the same.. I had the hinson kit in before and switched to Samberg's for this swap so i don't have apples to compare but it all bolted up to the chassis like it seemed it was sposed to.  The mount's bolt holes have some adjustability in them too if i'm not mistaken? 

Next week is gonna be "Project V8 RX-7 Week" on the site, so i'll have a buttload of updates including the shifter to show off.  The car is CA smog legal as of last friday I'm proud to say once again!  :halo:

Jeff-  Good to hear you are back on the V8 RX-7 forum!  That is a bad ass project.  Love reading about it.  Congrats on being smog legal too!

I sold a local guy with a 2002 Camaro a Magnum and he said the electrical portion on his was plug and play.  He did mention that there was no provision for a torque arm mount.... but he runs a tubular aftermarket one anyway.  Also my Tremec distributor in TX makes his own shifter that allows MANY options for where you want the stick. 

Would love to see some pics of your shifter setup.  I hope to order my T56 Magnum after Memorial Day weekend.

Anyway, it's Project V8 RX-7 Week on the site so there'll be 5 new articles to read!  the first of which has the shifter I got made up by Sikky!

Finally got the deposit on the red LPI Racing FD so it is technically sold.  That means I can order up the T56 Magnum for myself.

So I put in an order for (3) of them and sent out payment.  One for the guy that bought the race car, 1 for me, and 1 for Mike (LS1-FD) who is doing a turbo LS9 powered 528i BMW. 

Should have it in the gray street car shortly after that... and the goal is to have the car finished in July.

Thx for your order RawrX8

Here are some pics of the shifter my Tremec Distributor makes. 

Shifter can be moved forward or backward up to 3.8".
Can go as far as 4.1" if you deviate to the left or right more than 1".

Hmmm, is there a different piece that you put on to get it to be positioned the max 4.1" rearward?   As pictured it looks like it would hit the tranny tunnel on a T56 Magnum.

I'm trying to get pricing and more particulars on the shifter I posted. 

My Tremec guy has been traveling and was in Iowa for a recent show/booth event put on by Tremec to talk to customers.
He is a busy guy and very innovative.  They have built a couple AWD T56 setups and he also rebuilds G50 Porsche transaxles, Ricardo Ford GT boxes, and other exotic stuff.

From the look of the side picture, it looks like the shifter can be offset left or right, but it sits even more forward than the OE Tremec shifter, we need to find a shifter that sits even more rearward from the actual shifter plate.

Something like the Sikky shifter without the $500 price tag.

the 3 T56 Magnums I ordered should be here this week. 

When I fit it into my car, take comparison pictures, and have real facts I'll share them.  The last thing I'm going to order is the shifter.  The SIKKY product looks like a quality piece.

I should be moving into a new place beginning of Aug, will probably hold off on ordering a transmission until then, but expect me to put in an order through with you about that time. Looking forward to seeing the fitment stuff you have to deal with.

In my car with a Samberg subframe and quicktime bell housing I have 5 +/- 1/8th inches from the standard Tremec shift point to center of the FD shift hole.

You get the about the same Mark?

Freshly rebuilt LS2 shortblock with LS3 heads/intake setup goes in the FD race car tmrw with T56 Magnum.  Will take pics and measurements then.  Running a Samberg engine and T56 trans mount on the car (plus 8.8" Cobra rear mount).

comparison pics of Fbody T56 to the new T56 Magnum.  I put the front bearing plates (where the bellhousing bolts to) at approximately the same side by side distance.  The difference you will see is in the shifter location and tailshaft length.

I'm going to go with the shifter my Tremec distributor offers shown on reply #17.  One should arrive Monday or Tuesday to see how it works out.  The linkage that moves it back 3-4 inches isn't shown in the picture!

BTW- The T56 Magnum's casting provision for the mount is about 2" closer towards the engine.  I am running the Samberg Fabrication mount and stock T56 Energy Suspension poly bushing which isn't dependent upon location as it is more of a universal location design.  Hinsons relies upon the stock FD trans mounting locations and won't work on a Magnum.
Straight forward install aside from that.

Does the Magnum have mounting provisions for the stock-style T56 mount, or the TR6060-style mount?  We made an adapter here for the TR6060 mount/isolator to go into the Samberg chassis mount hole, can probably make another one for ya until Justin makes a TR6060-compatible mount plate.

So I put the T56 Magnum into my FD which originally had an Fbody T56 and the rubber trans mount locations are identical.  I'm running an Energy Suspension universal GM polyeurathane mount on it.

I didn't even need to redrill the holes in the floor for the Samberg steel trans mount itself.   They went back exactly like before!  The only difference seems to be the tailshaft length now and 31 spline output shaft.

Still waiting on this shifter to arrive.

and...... from the top.  I did have to bend the sheetmetal up a small amount to clear the arm when shifting into 1-3-5 etc.

After speaking with my 3 engineer buddies (Mech engineers that design cooling systems for GE nuclear power plants) they said both the Sikky unit and the red one I'm running will work fine.  The red unit they said as long as the base or arm doesn't flex/deflect will shift essentially the same as the Sikky unit.  Being such a short arm on this application they said has no downsides vs. a cantilever system.  Only on longer distances did they say a cantilever system would be preferred.

This unit is $350 vs. the Sikky which is $500.

Hey Mark,

I'd be interested to see the throw from 1st to 2nd or 3 to 4 if you have them..  that's the only thing i was concerned about with a shifter offset that much.  I can take some pics of mine too and replicate your angle so we can compare.  it would be interesting to see.

I pulled out my new (5 years old) Textralia ExoSkel clutch for some machine work on it and a balance.  POS clutch was the 1st run they made and had some manufacturing issues which need to be addressed.  Posts need to be milled, shimmed, and floater plate needs some machining.  In the future all that I'm buying is McLeod products.

I'll get it back hopefully in a week and continue then.  On the bright side my 31 spline 3.5" alum HD driveshaft was finished last week and fits like a glove.

So while browsing the net today I came across what looks like a Tremec T56 Magnum for Chevy F-bodies, is this an actual production piece from Tremec?  If so, will this resolve the main issue of the shifter location on the FD with the Tremec T56 Magnum for Ford trans that's being used now?

The picture on the bottom retains the stock FBody torque arm mount... but you still need to move the shifter further back for our applications.
It is not an out of the box offering from Tremec. 

They cost a lot more than $2895 with that modification that is for sure.  Transmission rebuilders are modifying them to accept the Fbody tailhousing and shifter.  You still need a Steeda Tri-Ax handle or similar to move it back yet another 2-3 inches.

What gear ratios do you offer?

Can you get something close ratio like this:
4.2.29-1st, 1.60-2nd, 1.21-3rd, 1-1 4th, 0.84-5th, 0.67-6th (Close Ratio)


Thinking of keeping the stock diff and would like to gear the trans taller in the lower gears to keep it a bit more civil.

You can have any gear ratios you want in it.  Changing 5 gears and the labor will add an easy $1500 or more to the price.

out of the box choices for LS motors are:
2.97 TUET11012 (I have yet to sell one of these.... the gear ratios IMO are not performance oriented)
2.66 TUET11009 (this one is your best option..... I run it with 575rwhp approx.... good for 350rwhp also.  Nice .80 5th gear ratio)

Did 191mph at the Shift Sector 1/2 mile event with boost falling off.  Easily capable of 200mph+.

They are $3050 delivered to a commercial address.

They've had f-body rear sections available for the TR6060 and T56 Magnum for over a year.  I'm sure Mark can elaborate (and give you pricing), but we've always had that option through our trans shop.

What AZDrake is referring to is an off the shelf offering from Tremec.

It "should" be available later this year to order directly from me via Tremec.
It still requires a different yoke as the output shaft is 31 spline.  As far as I know you need a 3.5" tube on the shaft to accept that yoke and I would recommend a 1350 Spicer Ujoint at the same time.

What Jordan Innovations is saying is that you can have an F-body tailhousing installed now.... by a trans shop.... but it adds considerably to the price.... big time due to machining the output shaft and complete tear down/reassembly of the unit with new tailshaft housing and boring it out also to accept the 31 spline shaft.

I get PM'd and lots of calls about running the new TR6060 from the 2010+ Camaro in LS swaps.  While you can get them for decent prices ($1500 or so).... they need a new shifter as the stock one is super sloppy ($500), a more expensive driveshaft due to the need for a front CV joint and a 3 finger to 6 bolt adapater to make that driveshaft work as the TR6060 doen't have a traditional yoke up front.  There is some interference with your exhaust due the factory temp sensor in it as well.  The biggest downside is that the gearing in them is meant for a heavy pig new Camaro (3800lbs) and isn't well suited to our lightweight RX-7 swaps (2800lbs approx). 
The front bellhousing is also a one piece deal connected to the front bearing plate.  So to go to an SFI rated steel bellhousing is an expensive undertaking requiring custom work.

IMO they are not worth running and much more of a hassle to install overall.

I am on the fence with rebuilding my t56 or just going in on the magnum. It will be a street car and see the 1/4 often, and as of lately I have been really interested in getting it onto a track. Ultimately I am looking at putting down 700whp not sure where I will be sitting with the torque though, mid 600's?

Is there a new housing from tremec that would make the swap a little easier.

The Magnum can handle the power... and the shifting quality has no comparison to the pre 2008 T56's and especially the pre 2003 units. 

Save your $, sell your current trans, and buy a Magnum.  They are the sh*t.
While your current trans in a lightweight RX-7 can handle the power... it simply doesn't shift as nice as a Magnum.

We have put 1000rwhp+ thru them.  They are better in every way.  Read my review on page 1.

I have been informed that the T56 Magnum will go up by $100 in price starting sometime in January 2016.
New price is $3095.....  It hasn't gone into effect... so if you are on the fence.... maybe time to make a decision.

It's been a long time since the original posts about the shifter location issues. Has there been any definitive solution for this? In the last set of pictures I saw it looked like the shifter could still need to be about another inch back to be in the right position with the tremec shifter. Maybe its just fue to the console and everything not being there in the picture.

I am weighing the options between rebuilding my t56 or selling it for a magnum. I understand it's better but was wondering if a better solution for the shifter has been found.

4 solutions for setting the shifter further back
1) Sikky billet shifter $500
2) Red's version $300 approx
3) I modify the stock 6 bolt shifter that comes with the Magnum for the proper setback for $150
4) You modify the shifter yourself with $10 worth of parts I sell (cutoff wheel, drill press, MIG welder, 1.5 hrs).

The Magnum is worth the $.  The shifting smoothness is ridiculously nice.  Plus it will hold more power, have better resale, parts aren't on back order or made in Taiwan since Tremec is not supporting the older units with some parts production.... when they do the back orders are fulfilled and then parts go on back order again.

Sell your trans, recoup some $, and have a modern transmission that doesn't shift like a dump truck.

You can always sell your existing parts to recoup some $

Make sure that your slave cylinder hasn't failed.  Also bleed out the fluid and fully flush it.  Wrap the clutch line in some heat sleeve and route away from headers.  Your issue sounds hydraulic.

You can run a Samberg trans mount to make it work and obviously the rear diff mount as well.

i am assuming this is on an FD so I want to suggest you check the pedal bushing located where the clevis pin goes through the pedal. With what you describe and all you have tried I am thinking the bushing is shot and the pedal now has an egg shaped hole where the pin goes through.

As much as I love the Magnum transmission, it will not work properly if the pedal is screwed up.

progress has been slow as i had to remove my entire interior to trace some short on my car, after many more broken tabs and epoxying them back again... i finally put the interior back together...  i swear one day im just going to cage the entire car and run a aim switches and fuck all the damn plastic on this car.


btw the TR6060 tranmission shift sooooo butter smooth!!!! i have it on my other fd and its like butter... just like Mark said.. driving the older t56 feels like stone age!! god when my motor goes  this is on my must do list !

Prices for 2018 have increased from Tremec.  Rumor may become reality.... the Fbody style offset Magnum should be available by late spring/early summer.  This allows you to run your existing driveshaft without shortening it (replace yoke for 31 spline unit), the supplied shifter remains in same place as '98-02 Fbody so no real mods needed aside from a potential small setback stick.

Please email me for current pricing:  norcalmotorsport@gmail.com


Revised info:

4 solutions for setting the shifter further back on standard Magnum
1) Sikky billet shifter $500
2) American Powertrain White Lightning $335 approx
3) I modify the stock 6 bolt shifter that comes with the Magnum for the proper setback for $150
4) You modify the shifter yourself with $10 worth of properly measured parts I sell and basic instructions (cutoff wheel, drill press, MIG welder, 1.5 hrs voila.... magically you have saved yourself $300+).

I met with Nate from Tremec a few weeks ago and he told me the same thing!  it's either gonna get made or not--there will be no more "speculation" and the decision should come pretty soon. 

Also there's the 5th option for relocating the Magnum shifter of putting a regular T56 tailshaft on it.  there are a few more parts to buy and it is a little involved but if Tremec doesn't build the Magnum-F I may try that option for fun.

Modifying the stock Magnum shifter for free-fiddy isn't that hard and still feels nice. On an FC at least, you'll need to trim some sheet metal to reach all the shifter bolts, though.

It is going to be the same price or cheaper getting a standard T56 Magnum (2.66 ratio) and modifying the shifter that comes with it (add $335 for billet relocation shifter) and modified driveshaft (shortened and also 31 spline yoke) vs. buying the Fbody style one will be more expensive by about $600-700 (pricing isn't concrete yet) and then having the 31 spline yoke installed.  The mounting pad is in the same location as your current T56 (93-06 style).

Of note-  this will be a popular offering..... and it will be first come first served especially on the amounts I can get from my distributor as they will be flying out of his inventory.... as time goes on they will be easier to order due to more units being shipped and in stock.

You can get them modified that way...... but not directly from Tremec and they cost considerably more than the $3195 MSRP of a standard T56 Magnum.

To make the current T56 Magnum work you simply need to either modify the shifter that comes with it to move the shifter back... and shorten your current dshaft a couple inches then add a 31 spline yoke.  Other than that.... the mount is in the same place etc.  Most of the people on the list just want a drop in solution where you change out the yoke and then they will sell their current trans is my guess.

When these become available and are in stock .... I will make it public on there.

Word on the street is September timeframe for these.... which may mean October/Nov knowing Tremec production timeframes.  That is all for now....

I'll work my magic... trust me.... but it's hard to offer any group pricing when I don't even know the final price  :grin:

When these come out I see Tremec selling lots of them.... they will not be the same price as the current $3200 Magnum... they are going to cost more.

No kidding, waited for quite a long time for this. Gave up, bought the Magnum. Got new driveshaft and spline yoke. 

1 season later, it gets released.

They are not available yet..... We are guessing another 90 days or so..... I don't even know official pricing as it isn't out yet!  Don't hold your breath as Tremec has been saying they will release this for YEARS.

Current list and priority from top to bottom.....

T56 Magnum F-body style interest list:
The Fbody style T56 Magnum (new offering for 2019) uses a 4 bolt style shifter... only modification should be swap over to a 31 spline yoke on the driveshaft... full bolt in replacement for a '98-02 style T56 with the modern TR6060 internals/strength/shifting smoothness/parts availability!

Pricing and shipping dates will be made public here in the near future!

Im new to the RX7 -LS world.

I know i have a trans from a 2000 camaro. Is this just a direct swap ? or do I need to take parts off my trans and put it together with this new one? sorry for the noob question

In essence a direct swap aside from putting a 31 spline yoke on the front of your driveshaft.... You would swap over your bellhousing... depending upon how old your slave cylinder is.... If over a year old I would install a new one as for some reason in my findings once you release pressure from the hydraulics.... they get wonky and can fail.  IMO put in a new one.... and not worry about having to pull it.  That is up to the end user.  The T56 Magnum Fbody will also have mechanical and VSS style speedo outputs.  The crossmember will be in the same area.  Shifter just is now in the prime location.
