TREMEC releases the Magnum-F™ 6-speed for fourth-generation Camaros and Firebirds

The long-awaited and highly-anticipated F-car-specific version of TREMEC’s popular Magnum 6-speed has finally arrived!  Designed to replace T-56 transmissions in 1998-2002 GM F-bodies, the Magnum-F leverages TREMEC’s pervasive TR-6060/Magnum architecture in order to provide fourth-gen enthusiasts significantly improved performance and relief from a shrinking pool of quality T-56 replacement parts.

Born in the vacuum created by the release of the original T-56 Magnum (now known simply as ‘Magnum’) back in 2009, the Magnum-F fills a longstanding void in the overall Magnum line with regard to shifter locations; addressing not only LS1-powered ‘98-02 F-bodies, but several other applications that utilize a similar shifter position.  Beneficiaries include third-generation F-bodies, LT1-powered fourth-gens, LS-swapped late models of all varieties, and sport compact applications such as A80 Supras, FD RX-7s, and more!  Where the original Magnum shifter locations may prove too far forward, and the extended length Magnum XL’s too far back, the Magnum-F’s in-between position often proves to be just right.

Inside, the Magnum-F benefits from the same durable componentry found in many of today’s hardest hitting OEM muscle & sports cars.  Over the T-56, the Magnum-F boast increased face-width on all gears, a robust combination of double and triple cone synchronizers, enhanced webbing in the main case, provisions for a cooler circuit and more!  TREMEC also took the opportunity to upgrade the shifter to an isolator type unit, like that found on its Magnum XL.  The shifter reduces in-cabin noise and vibrations while at the same time providing the precise and communicative shift feel that all Magnums are known for.  And like all TREMEC aftermarket transmissions, the Magnum-F is made from 100% brand-new OEM-quality content and features a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty.

  1. Does this this this transmission use the same shifter set back as my TKO that is in use in a 68 Camaro restomod?? The car is running a modified LSA crate motor.

    1. No 6-speed and 5-speed use different shifter set ups. We would not use this Magnum for your Camaro we would use the standard one so we could get the correct shifter location. This trans is made to bolt into a 98-02 F-body.

  2. If you own a 4th gen Trans Am WS6 with a t56 and have a short throw shift your already comfortable with can you use it with this transmission?

    1. Yep. It is the same transmission but stronger internals and larger output shaft 31-spline yoke. That is the only change you have to make to bolt it in. Tremec upgraded the shifter to shorter throw which I am sure has way more design improvements than the aftermarket one you have on your T-56.
