The solution to 2005-up Ford Mustang S197 Shift problems
Are you plagued with shifting issues in your 2005-up Mustang, including the 2011 and 2012 Mustang’s? Have you beefed up the motor with power adders, pushing beyond the limits of the TR3650 (2005-2010) or Getrag MT-82 (2011-2012)? Is the 2-piece driveshaft causing vibration issues at high speeds?
The TREMEC® T56 Magnum XL 6-speed transmission is aimed specifically at S197 Mustang enthusiasts! The new ‘direct-shift” T56 Magnum™ XL for 2005-up Ford Mustangs represents a long awaited solution to the semi-remote shifter woes experienced by many 2005-up Mustang owners, as well as, TREMEC’s most significant foray into the Mustang aftermarket since the days of emerging 5.0 Fox-body performance!
Shift issues solved
Designed almost exclusively with S197 Mustangs in mind, this new model draws from a combination of proven OE (Shelby GT500) and racing (Grand Am Cup) technologies. Featuring an application specific ‘direct-shift’ extension housing, the Magnum solves the issue of numb, inaccurate shifts offered by the factory semi-remote shifter; replacing them instead with crisp, clean, confidence-inspiring throws. The S197’s exceptional driver ergonomics are maintained; along with the added ability to custom tailor shift action thanks to TREMEC’s innovative “adjustable-bias” short throw shifter, standard on every new assembly!
High Performance kit
Other significant features include a slip yoke rear interface, eliminating the need for complex 2-piece driveshafts, and an SFI-approved steel bellhousing for added safety in high-horsepower applications! Installation is simple thanks to thoughtful design by TREMEC engineers and a TREMEC supplied swap-specific crossmember. In most cases users can even retain their factory clutch release system. Like all Magnum series transmissions, the new model carries with it a generous 700 lb-ft torque capacity rating, and the choice of two exclusive gear ratio combinations.
Wide ratio & short ratio gear choices
For comparison purposes, the following chart shows the 2005-2010 TR3650 ratios and the 2011-2012 Getrag transmission ratios.
Remember, when changing from one transmission to the other that the rear-end ratio is going to make a difference. Stock ratio's range from 2.73, 3.31, 3.55, 3.73 depending on V6 or V8 and stock vs performance package etc.
How does the T56 Magnum compare to previous T-56's?
The kingpin of TREMEC’s high performance line-up, the all-new T-56 Magnum takes the very best from current OEM technologies and pairs it with the most popular features of the all-business TKO 5-speed. Just what is it that makes the TREMEC T-56 Magnum better than its predecessors?
