5 Stars   Heaven on a stick.
By on 11/6/2014
i am still in the break in period but so far i must say i am impressed. compared to my old t5, this t56 has what seems to be a much tighter linkage causing my shift time to become greatly reduced and no more leaning forward for 5th gear because its as easy to hit as 3rd gear. drivability is super simple too. effortless takeoffs and as advertised "butter smooth shifts". the 6th gear OD (.50 gear) has me at about 2000rpms@78 VS. 3000rpms@75 in 5th in my old t5, effectively turning my 3.73 rear end into a highway gear on the top end. i simply could not be happier with this upgrade.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Transmission came in quick...It makes the 4.56 gears bearable for highway gears. Shorter shifts and a smoother throw is a perfect match for my 363ci sbf shifting at 7k rpms.

I am still building the car this is going in, but it is a Tremec. I highly doubt I will have any problems with it (which is why I purchased it)
