Just a transmission question...

Postby ponypowered91 » August 9th, 2015, 5:16 am

I've been looking through some forums and doing my own mild research (God forbid I actually clicked on a couple Wikipedia pages) but I was wondering with the knowledge we have here if anyone knew off the top of their head the distinct differences between a Tremec TR6060 and a T56. The research I've done mentions in most applications they can used interchangeably, and the first thing I did was verify they are indeed NOT the same trans, but my questions are more physical. Do they use the same mounts? Can you interchange bell housings? Basically could you take a tr6060 out, put the bell housing, shaft, and clutch on a T56, and slap it back in without custom brackets? This isn't for any particular idea or build or persons car, I'm just spitballing here. Thanks in advance for any help, guys.

If I remember right the gearing is different and the overall strength is better on the 6060. As far as dimensions go I'd assume they are nearly identical. Your best bet to find out if the mounts are the same is to check out cobra or corvette forums for individuals whom have swapped to the 6060 from a t-56. A quick check of the input shaft splines will tell you if the clutch is interchangeable.

I'll check out a few forums. I feel like even if it all fits mechanically then you couldn't just throw a t56 in a tr6060 car without changing the harness and possibly the ECU.
