Drivetrain / Re: T56 Clutch Slave Cylinder Options

Replace pilot bearing (Fbody style) and slave every time you replace a clutch is the norm.  I've been selling LUK slaves for 14 years without issues.  In my findings once you release the pressure in the hydraulics if they are over a year or so old.... they don't seem to work as well and can fail.  Cheap enough to simply replace.

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.

Parts for Sale / T56 Magnum Fbody (bolt in replacement for T56)
« on: August 10, 2019, 12:08:27 PM »
I want to put this up here to continue the list of people that need this new style T56 Magnum which is a bolt in replacement for the current '98-02 style T56.  The only change needed will be a swap over to the 31 spline front yoke on the driveshaft.  No shifter mods or shortening of the driveshaft like the current T56 Magnum offering.  You can run the 4 bolt style T56 Shifter on the Fbody style... the current Magnum version has a 6 bolt style shifter which IMO is nowhere near as nice... plus once you modify it (more setback) the feel is not as good as it could be.

If you want one... reply here and I'll add you to the list... if you are tentative and don't have the $ please indicate so.  This is going to happen in Fall so you better get on the list if you have been waiting for the good news.... as early bird gets the worm. I don't have exact pricing OR shipping dates just yet.... but it is approaching  :cheers:

Current list for this transmission and info about the Magnum:

My buddy does this kind of racing here on the West Coast and his bike has a Ninja 600cc motor in it.  It is pretty nutty!

Found one!  Thank you very much

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!

Anyone else need to be put on the list?  Sharpening my pencil.......

Any of you interested in a McLeod RST or RXT clutch to go with it?

I'm a Tremec dealer and there is no mention of confirmed pricing and/or when it will physically be in stock.  So don't hold your breath until I announce it... unless you love typing and holding your breath  :yay:

Also remember that there are TONS of people that want this transmission and not just RX-7 swaps... so the earlier you are on my list to buy one... the sooner I can ship one as inventory will be done in runs just like it always is.  Once the production run that is delivered to dealers runs out... they make another run which can take months.

I'm guessing the price will be around $3800-3999.

I still need this please.  If you think you have one for sale let me know!

Please check in on my vendor section from time to time when this unit finally becomes available.  My guess is 90 days out....

If you are interested please reply to the above link and I'll add you to the list!  These will be a hot ticket item.... so if you are SERIOUS... then add your name with a reply.  They are going to cost more than $3200 that is for sure.

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.

Viper has 30 spline output shaft... 2nd gear is a better design... input shaft won't work unless you buy a Quicktime $700 bellhousing to adapt it..... otherwise you need to change out input shaft/front bearing plate to run an LS1 bellhousing.

Unless you are on a big budget.. know it works perfectly.... and got it for stupid cheap.... PASS.
