6060 swap into a Gen 2

I know some of you have done this. What exactly does it entail? I drove my car for the first time last night after the mile and I have some whine in 1st-3rd gear. I've been down this road before, I know what's coming. I have an extra t-56 out of a 2006 coupe that I could swap in, but I figure I might as well sell both t-56 trannys and step up to a 6060.

Also, if anyone has a line on a 6060, let me know. PM is fine.

Thanks,

Alk

Get with John Donato on converting or upgrading a 6060 when you get one. I just did the same thing.

When installing a TR6060 in the Gen. 2 with the AEM...you do this and you have to do that.


RSI has done this...most recently for Jrod.
And yes, Donato is the man. I could be wrong, but I heard RSI has an exclusive with Donato on their specific upgraded 6060.

We have done many of these swaps in gen 1, 2, and 3 vipers.

You'll need the tone wheel off your current transmission. SO, if your not familiar, youll have to pull the sensor out of the tailshaft and also remove the tailshaft housing.

Then you will need to drill out the case on the t6060 to accommodate the speed sensor you just pulled out. This will get the housing of the t6060 ready to bolt on. This is fairly easy and straight forward.

When you remove the tailshaft housing on BOTH transmissions, you will see that the gen 2 t56 has a small tone wheel on it which is what triggers your speed sensor. SOMETIMES you can get lucky and the t6060 will have it. If it does, your now ready to assemble. Most likely it doesnt. Therefor you will need to remove the tone wheel off the old transmission and install it onto the t6060 IN THE CORRECT position. If its not in the proper spot, you wont have a speedo! You need to use something to center the tone wheel on the shaft. Then it needs to be tig welded into place. If you need to see the correlation of how it lines up, remove the sensor from the stock t56 and get a light to take a look in while its assembled.

Once this is done, its re assembly time. Install the transmission back up.

Now you will need the gen 4 driveshaft so you can rob the yoke from it . This will need to be pressed out. Now press out the old yoke from your original driveshaft. Install the yoke from the t6060 into your gen 2 driveshaft.

Assemble and install. The shifter will be slightly farther to the pass side of the car. Not problematic at all.

Drastic improvement and well worth it. We have this trans behind several 1000rwhp cars.

Normally i dont have the time to do write ups, but fortunately im on a plane right now

Hope this helps you.

Is it more cost effective to do the 6060 or build your T56? I am hoping to be safe myself for awhile but when Alky brought this up the question kind of crossed my mind.

I spent a lot less getting my 6060 built from Donato than most of the big build T-56's.

I had to change a tail housing on one that the shifter bolts split the corners of the case, they are pretty nice looking inisde, the better sychros are a much needed upgrade.

I think the noises coming from mine are from TI. Probably the downshifting. I didn't drive the car between TI and the mile and I only made 4 passes at the mile.

You need to use something to center the tone wheel on the shaft. Then it needs to be tig welded into place. If you need to see the correlation of how it lines up, remove the sensor from the stock t56 and get a light to take a look in while its assembled.

Once this is done, its re assembly time. Install the transmission back up.

Now you will need the gen 4 driveshaft so you can rob the yoke from it . This will need to be pressed out. Now press out the old yoke from your original driveshaft. Install the yoke from the t6060 into your gen 2 driveshaft.

Assemble and install. The shifter will be slightly farther to the pass side of the car. Not problematic at all.

Drastic improvement and well worth it. We have this trans behind several 1000rwhp cars.

Normally i dont have the time to do write ups, but fortunately im on a plane right now

Todd can you keep the gen 2 drive shaft? I have a really nice CF one I would hate to sell.
