We apologize we are currently out of stock on this item

 

TREMEC’s TKO series of 5-speed transmissions was first made famous by the 5-liter Mustang movement and has since been fitted into nearly every rear-wheel drive performance application imaginable. Serving up 600 lb-ft of torque capacity, along with confidence-inspiring shifts and fuel-saving overdrive, the TKO offers an ideal blend of brute strength and street manners – which may be why it’s the manual transmission behind more boulevard-bruising street machines and sportsman race victories than all of it’s competitors combined.

Based on the 3550 family of five-speed, Tremec up the game in 2004 by offering TKO600 close-ratio five-speed to replace the “TKO” as the top dog.
For those that have a 3.50:1 axle ratio or higher ratios the TKO600 with its 2.87:1 first gear and .64:1 (36%) 5th overdrive will provide a low rpm cruise speed. If you are making big power or play hard in the first four gears and want to cruise home in overdrive, the TKO600 is the transmission for you.
