Will a 10 camaro t56 tranny work with the ls1 from an 04 vette that is goin into a s13? do i need any special modification since its not an 98? if i will be usin the sikky kit, will the sikky kit work perfect or i need to mod that as well?

dnt bash at me! im postin in the newbie section :)

-T-56, Found in: 98-02 Camaro, Firebird, GTO*

^^^ i guess that means this tranny is no good right?

this guy is tellin me his 2010 camaro 6 speed is a t-56... u sure they do not use this tranny?

i guess i'll keep lookin for a 98-02. the 04 vette engine is good tho right?

nvm they confirmed it was not a t 56. sorry.

The newest camaros and corvettes with manual 6 speeds (as well as other cars) have the TR6060 transmission, which has a list of differences from the T56...

Yeah I think its a T-6060 or something like that. I was told it would work either. Look for the GTO tranny. It's a MN12. Shorter geared and double synchros. If I ever come across one at a good price I'll be swapping one into my Z

someone correct me if i'm wrong, but I believe all the LS engines have the same bolt locations for the trannys, right?

i want to agree with you on that,... but i'm not sure on the external dimensions/differences of the transmissions themselves. So although it may bolt up, i'm wondering what fitment issues would come up.

I agree with the earlier post on finding an M12 T56 since it's all internal upgrades.

But if someone COULD get a TR6060 for that price, and installation is as simple as a tranny swap... ... well who wouldn't pay $1250 for a 600 hp/ft lbs rated 6 speed? It's takes around $2k to get t56s up to those specs

it should bolt up, but you will need the clutch and flywheel from the 2010 as well.

i am just scared that it would not bolt right up and does not fit in the "tunnel".

Well if it dont fit sell it and make some extra money on it but i dont see why it would not fit i would think the only problem might be its a little bigger in diameter.

I received my 2010 Camaro LS3/TR6060 dropout today and took some measurements of the transmission and shifter. (See the attached file)

Enjoy!

U may have a problem were the shifter bolts up.

t56 and t6060 use the same housing...just the t6060 is a stronger version of the t56. They are pretty much the same, but they are not very interchangeable due to the strength, but the t6060 will bolt up to a ls considering that's what its hooked up to in the 2010.

Since this appears to be the most current link on the TR6060 Camaro transmission. I figure I'll post the little tid-bit I learned yesterday regarding the shifter assembly.

- The shift lever is offset about a 1/2" from center towards the driver side. I was in the process of positioning the TR6060 transmission in the swap I'm doing and things just weren't lining up. The Camaro aluminum transmission cross member also has an offset, but the mount itself is centered and symmetrical, so I would wager that the 2010 Camaro tunnel is not center either. (Could the complete driveline be offset for balance purposes?)
- More time and money! Now I have to modify the assembly or find and purchase a new assembly that doesn't have an offset!
- I am looking into the MGW short throw shifter assembly. It looks like the offset is put in place on the mounting arms and the shifter assembly appears to be symmetrical.

(One can see the offset in the cast aluminum arms of the shifter carrier.)
