LS1 Camaro T56 Transmission Rebuild - Rock That Box

Having Trouble Jamming It In? Then Get Your T56 Upgraded By Rockland Standard Gear For Some Bangin' Good Times.

When the gods above blessed us with the six-speed T56 gearbox, we were beyond words. Here was this slick-shifting internal-rail gearbox built like a brick poophouse that could handle immense amounts of torque without breaking a sweat and, best of all, it bolted right up to any Chevy engine. The LT1 owners soon discovered that or more rear-wheel horsepower could course through the T56's veins with little-to-no consequence.

Not long after, traditional small-block enthusiasts began retrofitting these boxes into their older rides with incredible results. These gearboxes ultimately proved themselves durable on the street and bulletproof on the track.

Having seen the inner workings of a T56 firsthand, we can certainly understand why the T56 is such an incredible transmission, right out of the box. Ease of service, robust construction, and lightweight design all come together in what must be the best six-speed on the planet. If there was anything we could wish for, it would be Fifth being a direct ratio for a tighter ratio set between First through Fourth gears. But we're being a picker of nits at that point because, really, what is there not to love?

As time passed, T56s started showing up at transmission shops at rebuild time. Many technicians treated it like any other transmission, often forgetting key processes while reassembling it, never realizing how significant the little details could make the T56 better than it was new. For instance, by blueprinting a T56 for minimal endplay, overall torque capacity can sometimes improve by as much as 40 percent. So when it came time for us to rebuild the T56 in one of our LS1 Camaro projects, we decided to go to Rockland Standard Gear.

Located in Sloatsburg, New York, Rockland Standard Gear is a company that specializes in all sorts of on- and off-road performance drivelines. From rock-smashing transfer cases in rugged four-wheel-drive trucks to American Le Mans race series transmissions, Rockland has been versed in racers' needs for many years. We knew that Rockland's experience would be overkill for our measly street-driven and occasionally strip-beaten Camaro, so we went with its Race Ready rebuild that ups the torque capacity of the factory T56 to a staggering lb-ft of torque. As a point of reference, the T56s that were installed in the ' Camaros and the 'present Corvettes were/are factory rated anywhere from to lb-ft capacity.

As the vice president of the remanufacturing division at Rockland Standard Gear, George Kreppein Jr. showed us all the tricks that he had up both of his sleeves and didn't hesitate to tell us what works and what doesn't. Case in point: He wholeheartedly recommends carbon-fiber OE synchronizers and billet synchro keys with a steel shift fork on the commonly weak gearset, but finds no value in bronze fork pads. He explained that the nylon OEM-style fork pads work very well and that the metallic units just beat up and wear the slider grooves unnecessarily.

As for why T56s fail, Kreppein mentioned that the reasons are typically er typical. That is, it's not usually the transmission's fault but everything that it's surrounded by. As he related, "The biggest cause for failure on these T56s is lubrication, which is the cause of most of the damage we see. Not enough fluid and the bearings and synchros get burned out real quick. Then it's usually the clutch. Most racers put in a heavy aftermarket clutch with one or two discs and it beats up the synchros real fast."

Kreppein warned us not to use a clutch disc setup that is much heavier than stock. If you think about it, it makes perfect sense. When rotational weight is added to the input shaft, it adds momentum and makes it harder for the synchronizer to slow down or speed up the gears inside to match them together as you reach for the next cog. This will wear the synchros quicker and make your transmission rough shifting in short order. This issue is more common on C5 and C6 Corvettes because, unlike Camaros, they come with an incredibly long (read: heavy) input shaft extension, and the use of a multi-disc clutch just makes an already bad situation worse.

Lastly, Kreppein added, "The most uncommon cause for failure is driver error by either missing a shift or going into the wrong gear. The mechanical failure rate on these T56s is so rare, it's scary. You hardly see broken gears or hard parts. This transmission is one of the best engineered in the industry, and I've seen them all."

A highly recommended option is a Super Finish micro polish for all the internals that help reduce operating temperatures and silken shift action for an extra $ (prices vary up to $, depending on the application of your T) This process may add seven days to the turnaround time on your gearbox, but we think it's worth it.

Kreppein also emphatically recommends a good synthetic fluid to keep temps down, improve synchronizer action, and prevent foaming. Because Rockland has done so much testing in road race environments, it has come up with its own line of synthetic transmission fluid branded as "Tranzilla." It is designed to work with Rockland's own line of transmissions, but will work perfectly fine with your existing gearbox.

So, we went with his fluid recommendation and heeded his word on clutches by matching our freshly Race Ready T56 with a proven Zoom single-disc Kevlar clutch and matching billet steel flywheel for reliable performance. Trademark features to the Zoom Kevlar setup include incredible clamping force, reasonable pricing and minimal pedal effort-all three attributes are ones that we can certainly live with. Besides, we were digging the purple paint.

If you choose to buy one of Rockland Standard Gear's in-stock boxes, then it will save you tons of time, but of course, will add to the total out-the-door price. For those who chase horsepower like it's covered in blond hair and tight jeans, Rockland Standard Gear also offers its Tranzilla series of transmissions that includes a custom gearset made of a unique proprietary alloy that can handle an incredible 1, lb-ft of torque (read sidebar). Although it was offered to us, we thought it would have been more realistic to live with the standard $1, Race Ready rebuild.

Once completed, we reinstalled this gearbox into our second '01 Camaro test vehicle. The Zoom clutch held up to the hellacious punishment without a peep and on the street, its silken action made driving a pleasure. In the end, any rough-shifting T56 deserves a thorough rebuild done right. Just make sure that the next time you plan a project that will include a T56 gearbox, have it gone over properly and let an expert go through it, not some fly-by-night operation. You'll save yourself considerable amounts of time and energy in the end.

As you know, the T56 has been the favorite six-speed of choice by the Big Three for all of its performance applications. From Viper GTS Coupes to Z06 Corvettes and even SVT Mustang Cobras, this gearbox has come in many different forms over the years for specific applications. As such, different variants have come out of the T56's Tremec factory in Mexico, allowing the aftermarket to mix and match its own combination of OEM parts to make transmissions handle immense amounts of torque. But Rockland Standard Gear goes a step further and offers its own unique alloy gearset for the T56 and calls the finished product the "Tranzilla T"

The Tranzilla T56 is designed to handle 1, lb-ft of torque (yikes!) and is available with an incredible variety of ratios as steep as a or as short as for First. Ratios for all the remaining gears can be suited for your needs as road racers and drag racers alike would want to take advantage of the four available combos. The gears themselves have a less helical profile (of just 22 degrees) to handle more torque. It does increase gear noise ever so slightly, but the increase in power capacity is certainly worth it. Units retail from $5, to $8,, depending on the applications, and come with a one-year unlimited mile warranty. This is the T56 to get if you're serious about power.

In total, the sum of all these parts allows you to pound ludicrous amounts of power to the ground. Just pray that the rest of your driveline can handle it.

    I talked to Allen at Futral Motorsports and he quoted me $ labor, but I can't remember if I told him I was gonna drop it out myself and bring him just the tranny or not.

    Thats of course not including any kind of parts.

    That's not a bad price, but remember the parts add up pretty quick. It might end up being right around or maybe a little bit more.

      Hi guys.

      My gearbox has always been quite notchy/clunky, it is hard to put in words but as i shift into any gear it feels as if it goes about 50% of the way to the slot then as the revs drop a bit i can almost feel the gears finally match up and the shifter goes the final 50% in and the gear is engaged. Now if i really slam the shifter in then it'll go in but it feels very nasty if i do that on the strip. Also sometimes at a stand still it wont engage first easily and i have to find 2nd then go to 1st. reverse can only half engage at times also. i've recently had issues with my 2nd gear syncros in a VY SS. At least i think it is the syncros very occasionally when i shift into 2nd gear it feels as if the syncros dont do what they are supposed to do and the horrible sound of metal grinding on metal fills my cabin before the gear finally engages. It is not something i want to continue to happen so i am guessing the t56 will need some work done.

      i spoke to mal woods today and there seems to be any number of issues that it could be attributed to and had a few quotes come down the line that scared me pretty harshly.. $ worst case scenario for a full rebuild had me doing some googling and i found on holmart brand spankers for only $

      Now i am not saying they are taking me for a ride here as i know they're pretty much the oracle when it comes to the trusty ol t But does anyone else have a good contact i could have a chat to about getting my box pulled down and this issue sorted? possibly a little bit cheaper than almosst new price would be much appreciated.

      It is expensive, but be certain to compare apples with apples when you get another quote, to ensure that the work performed is similar in both cases. I do know that Mal Wood does put a fair few 'extras' into his rebuilds, if memory serves me correctly, such as lower ratio 5th and 6th gears, etc. If it was me and I had a bolt-on or mild cammed car, I'd simply be looking at a brand new box - which could be had for less than $3k if you shop around.

      cheers

      I've raised a couple of threads regarding this and in the end I opted for a number of potential fixes, all of which have contributed greatly to a very smooth gearbox.

      The T56 will always be a little notchy, you just have to live with that, but when I had mine start playing up i.e. wouldn't select gear while driving, would go half-in then not any further etc. I decided enough was enough.

      Took it to Scotty at Sure Shift Automatics in Geebung (forum sponsor, he keeps a few memebers both on here and other forums very happy), sure enough, clutch was rooted and the spigot bearing worn. The replacement of the spigot means that selecting first is almost a non-event now (as it should be), as before it was a MAJOR pain.

      I also got an Exceedy heavy duty single mass conversion fitted which has meant the clutch is lighter than stock, however that hasn't got anything to do with the notchyness.

      Even though it's expensive, perhaps get the box flushed with some good quality "cleaner" (I've heard mainlube are the ducks nuts), then drain and fill with something decent.

      I change mine every 10,km's and it's been a lot better since then.

      If syncro's are the issue it's a whole different ball game, however I thought it was syncro's and it goes to show I've not the faintest idea about gearboxes :)

      clutch was rooted and the spigot bearing worn.

      this here is what I would suspect is the likly culprit. it wouldnt hurt to flush the oil out the box and refill with mainlube. I would of thought if it was all gears you were having trouble with it would be unlikly to be syncros


      VY-SV8

      , PM

      sorry, i should have mentioned it has a brand new clutch/pressure plate/fly wheel/slave cylinder. Pretty sure the spigot was done at the same time. I have also recently done a full flush and refilled with transmax z and the nulon G80 additive.

      It sounds as if your syncro meshing is too smooth and needs to be roughed up and probably new syncros. If you are going to pull it out then I would go for Duncan Hore at Top Cog Caloundra. You can just courier it to him. Google for his number.

      Hey mate,

      What shifter are you using?

      I had a similar problem not that long ago which started shortly after fitting a Ripshifter. Long story short, those shifters are terrible for the T56 boxes. Even when their perfectly adjusted (which is hard to do) they tend to "overshift" the gears which damage the syncros. (Thats how they are able to shift so quickly).

      If you've put a ripshifter in recently it may not have been adjusted properly and has damaged the gearbox.

      I shipped my box up to malwood to get it inspected It was rooted and required a full rebuild (around $ using stock parts). I ended up going for a custom T56 Magnum and tailshaft (as my car sees track work) but the price wasnt cheap (cira $8k).

      A new box from Holmart is a good option, but be aware that if you fit an after market shifter its just a matter of time before the new box does the same thing. At least if you get yours rebuilt, you can customise a few things along the way (Eg beef it up a little).

      Cheers

      Im putting a ripshifter into mine tomorrow. Are they really that bad?? Ive heard nothing but good reports about them from ppl who have put them in. Or are u saying they have to be adjusted correctly to avoid damage to the gearbox?

      Make sure their perfectly adjusted. They'll overshift anyway, but if its out of adjustment it'll kill the box even quicker.

      Which is a great price But what car are you planning on putting it into? Cause you know it wont fit into a VT-VE commodore in stock form

      Part of the work malwood does is fit a XR6T rear casing which gives a 31 spline output, and moves the shifter back to line up for the commodores. He also fits different ratio gears, slave cylinder, remote bleed with braided lines, fits a better shifter and a few other internal modifications.

      So while you've got magnum for ~$, you'll now need to get someone to modify it to fit a commodore (if thats what its going in).

      So yeah, dont compare a stock part price from the US to a locally sourced but heavily modified version.

      Cheers

      HAHAHA, thanks for the replies feistl.

      I actually remember almost buying your ripshifter off you when i broke my stock one a the strip about oct of last year. So i have had a ripshifter in since then, i actually had it set up a little too conservatively when i first put it in and it wouldn't fully engage gears and sometimes would pop out. So i adjusted the stop bolts a little bit back from there sounds like perhaps i didnt get the balance quite right.. :(

      As it stands right now, it definitely needs a rebuild. Took her for a drive last night and 2nd gear is pretty much completely without syncros now kinda like driving a dog box. So she'll have to be pulled down at a minimum, which begs the question do i go a bare bones repair and get her up and running again. Or do the usual "while its out i may as well" and end up with a killer bill but a virtually unbreakable box?

      anyone have thoughts on this? how strong are these boxes? where is the weakest point and where should i be spending the most $$$ if i do get her beefed up a bit? keep in mind this isnt a track car and street manners are necessary.

      So i adjusted the stop bolts a little bit back from there sounds like perhaps i didnt get the balance quite right.. :(

      Yep, thats what i found out after my box was pulled down by malwood. They dont really mention it on the ripshifter website which is kind of annoying.

      Im not sure how accurate it needs to be, but i spent several hours stuffing around and following the guide to get it right, but obviously i didnt. I think theres more to it than just "feeling". Sounds like you've done the same thing i did


      which begs the question do i go a bare bones repair and get her up and running again. Or do the usual "while its out i may as well" and end up with a killer bill but a virtually unbreakable box?

      Yep, i went in with the intention of spending as little as possible (Eg get my box going again) then looked at second hand ones for around $ Few discussions later, bit of reading etc and i spent $8k :(. Its a dangerous trap. As i said earlier, the cost of rebuilding and beefing up my stock box was pretty close to what a T56 magnum was on a changeover basis. But then i needed the tailshaft modified to suit the Magnum So decided to get a custom built billet one rather than paying someone to modify a stock one.


      anyone have thoughts on this? how strong are these boxes? where is the weakest point and where should i be spending the most $$$ if i do get her beefed up a bit? keep in mind this isnt a track car and street manners are necessary.

      A stock T56 is actually a pretty good box, its just an issue when you fit the after market shifters. Supposedly the Mal Wood shifter is better than stock, but wont hurt the box. Doesnt feel as good as a ripshift though.

      Yeah its a tough decision

      Bit unlucky as there was a guy selling a T56 Magnum/Tailshaft combo for $5k in the for sale section recently That would have been a great buy and a good upgrade. However im fairly sure its sold now

      Cheers

      To have it done right it will be $ plus parts. It sounds like you need syncro's. $ is a good deal on any t You might get that much selling it as a core to a re-builder. Pick this car up Jon. You will have most everything you need for the install.

      Buy it now for that price, and you can alway sell it later if the rebuild becomes cost prohibitive.

      I spent about a grand to redo one recently. Replace the syncros, sliders, and the glass second gear

      now thats funny right there,.
      the longevity of 2nd gear is directly related to the speed of the shift and the amount of torque being transferred,. Laughing

      hmm, I see another one on my drive home for that's supposed to be in good shape.

      Issue is though, it's a mod out of my budget right nowwhat with car insurance, etc due
      Probably call the guy (it's about 80 miles from where I'm staying but on the way home) and if he's avail Sat, go look at it with in my pocket and see what happens

      thanks for the info.

      Tried to get with the guy to look at tranny and had in my pocket.
      Mind you this was 60 miles into a mile drive on Saturday.

      1. It rained HARD for + of those miles and was raining in the guy's town.
      2. Day before says he'll meet me by the interstate, gives me exit info, etc. cool!
      3. I give him the 30 minutes heads up. No answer, leave message.
      4. Get to exit, pull off, call. No answer. send text this time, "I'm here."
      5. 20 min later calls back and says he's running late and on the way in a few.
      6. Not hungry but eat lunch so I don't have to stop later, top off fuel.
      7. Watch the minutes and no miles tick by
      8. 30 min later nothing. Call back, no answer. I'm pretty annoyed now..
      9. 10 min later calls back and says his brother has the keys to the shop and can't get ahold of him, can I come back tomorrowUm, not happening told you I was driving through
      Get back on road rather deflated

      Wasn't meant to bekeep on shopping.

      You'd think he would have gotten it the night before or at least made an effort to get access to it.

      An $ flywheel with an $ clutch & pressure plate?

      Just the sound of it seems wrong.

      All well and good to give out options, but realisitcally, how many 6 speed cars would there be out there if everyone had to drop close to a grand in just the clutch system?

      It is probably safe to say there isn't anyone else on this board with a T56 that spent anywhere near that.

      Might wish to spend some time further investigating your options before running off and budgeting for that kind of coin.

      It is true that some people have had trouble with some of the cheaper AutoZone type clutches, but if you need that kind of quality to keep the clutch alive, then either you shouldn't be driving a manual transmission, or you're masking a problem somewhere else in the driveline.

      Yeah, even going with a Spec or RAM clutch, you're looking at about bucks I thought the McCloud twin discs were the only ones around a grand?

      And though I haven't heard good things about the Centerforce clutches, I did drive Tim's car and the clutch felt pretty nice.

      Keep in mind, this is coming from a guy who tried just about every clutch and never found one he liked. Wink

      Zoom - junk lots of chatter
      Performance - same clutch as zoom also chattered.
      1st ram - crap - pressure plate was coming apart!!
      2nd ram - different clutch ram sent the wrong one. Or was the first one wrong? They could not help me!!!!!
      Centerforce ($ from summit) was the best of the bunch. Dual friction single clutch.

      And I do know how to drive.

      The first two was with a dual mass flywheel so that may have been part of the chatter.

      The dirty little secret is that they all start with the exact same pressure plate. Zoom, Performance, & Ram do NOTHING to change it. Centerforce reworked thiers and add centrifical weights.

      The M80 is what you want. By far the most bang for your buck.

      Agreed that anyone is a good one cheers

      The sticker on the top is unreadable, but the shifter casing has an F as a suffix assuming f-body.
      Guy said 93 Camaro so it's one or the other. (m28 or m29). The is supposed to be a metal tag but I don't find one.
      I'm kinda suspicious of how good it is as there are a few bolts missing here and there ( said his buddy's rustang needed them).

      Right now though I have to toss the new startah in the wife's RMW
