Pfitzner Performance Gearboxes’ TREMEC T56-TR 6060 Performance Gearbox Range

Having created the first sequential-operation 6-speed gearsets for the TREMEC T56 - TR-6060 range, PPG has introduced complete billet aluminum-encased units for these gearboxes.

Pfitzner Performance Gearboxes (PPG) has introduced complete billet aluminum-encased units for the TREMEC T56 – TR-6060 Performance Gearbox Range (also known as the Magnum and Magnum XL), which are fitted in various forms to a wide range of cars – particularly GM and Ford models.

From high-performance replacement gearsets, to complete billet gearbox units, PPG takes its range of options for TREMEC T56 transmissions to another level. Having created the first sequential-operation 6-speed gearsets for the TREMEC T56 – TR-6060 range, PPG has raised the bar even higher by introducing the world’s first complete billet aluminum-encased units for these much revered and extensively used gearboxes.

The TREMEC T56 – TR-6060 performance gearbox range is fitted in various forms to a wide range of cars including the Corvette, Camaro, Mustang, F150 pick-ups, Dodge Charger, Dodge Viper, the Holden Commodore and Ford Falcon in Australia, and the Aston Martin in the UK.

PPG’s TREMEC T56 – TR-6060 market-leading six-speed sequential gear-set kits are available in both straight-cut and helical-cut dog-engagement options as a heavy-duty upgrade for in-line and transaxle configurations. Each directly replaces the OEM internals and can be fitted into the manufacturer casings with no requirement for modification or adaptation.

Used extensively for high-performance and motorsport applications, the quality of materials, billet steel component construction coupled with PPG’s unique heat-treatment process has seen cars fitted with PPG gear-set kits achieve multiple records and successes. Many of these accolades have taken place on the drag strip, with ETs of around six seconds regularly clocked up, as well as numerous and prestigious lap records at circuits all over the world. 

Always looking to innovate and push further towards the ultimate in transmission technology, PPG is excited to announce the introduction of a new range of billet aluminium casings and heavy-duty front plate for TREMEC T56 and TR-6060 sequential gearboxes. Each is pre-fitted with PPG’s existing tried, tested, and proven gear-set kits to provide levels of integrity, durability and functionality not seen before. 

In keeping with its philosophy of fit and function, the complete PPG unit directly replaces the OE gearbox with no changes required to surrounding components. This means it aligns directly with the vehicle’s existing bell housing, prop-shaft couplings, mountings and linkages. 

PPG continues its zero-compromise approach when it comes to actuation of paddleshift systems by specifying and fitting control units custom designed and manufactured by multiple Le Mans 24-hour winners Shiftec: www.shiftec.com
