I have a 2004 gt, but it's a automatic. Can I still do the t56 swap on it?

  • Hi, This transmission can be swapped into a automatic 04 GT but you will still need to get other components such as clutch,flywheel, linkages,pedal,transmission cross members/mounts and other parts to complete the swap.

I have a '04 Mach 1 and would like to know what else I would need to install the T56 besides transmission mount and shorter drive shaft?

  • Exhaust clearance if you have LT's, possibly. Get a new pilot bearing, always when changing a clutch, etc.. As you may or may not know these T56's come with 2 different available gear patterns and also a newer 2012 released version T56 Magnum XL rated for 700 ft. lbs. One with a Lower total gear ratio for First (2:97), Second (2:10), and Third (1:46). The Fourth gear being 1:1 ratio on both selections, then your Overdrive gears Fifth and Sixth also differ from pattern selection. This is a VERY important decision that if not chosen correctly could leave you with a nonreturnable transmission that doesn't perform to your car's capability/needs or your expected outcome. HP/TQ, Weight, Use, Rear gear, Tire size plus other variables should be looked at when making your selection, have a AM tech help advise you on this or even Tremec, but you will get the best service and price through AM. Both come with a Steel SFI rated Bellhousing, Heat/Dust Shield Plate, Cross member, Trans. Mount, Isolated Shifter mount, Shifter and Tremec inscribed ball and utilizes the stock hydraulic clutch system. Oil not included. Buy a new pilot bearing and select a Clutch,Pressure plate and matching Flywheel based on your estimated Torque/HP and use, under the clutch section on the website. I personally have a few "Ponies in the Barn" and one is a 11" GT fully built Coyote from the block up. She has a 76mm Turbo, Return style fuel system (E85), built rear/suspension. And YES I went with a T56 Magnum XL (not just the older T56) with the higher gear ratios because I knew HP/TQ wasn't gonna be an issue in a near stock weight 11' GT. A Quicktime steel SFI bellhousing, McLeod steel flywheel and RXT twin disc clutch was used because of my planned use. On my S197 platform a wiring harness was needed to make a semi-easy install for the electronics to work, like reverse lights, speedometer, etc.. which you may need also. A forum or Mustang fan group page on FB is usually a way to get "Been there done that advice". I went with a custom driveshaft from Justin's Performance Center (JPC). Needless to say I absolutely love having a monster sleeper super car that can handle daily driving or road trips. I hope this can give you/anyone the answers and knowledge they needed to go ahead and make good decisions when upgrading your Mustang or Ford vehicles.


Answer This Question

how well would this transmission fit my 1996 Mustang GT, what mods would I need?

  • The Ford Performance TREMEC T56 6-Speed Transmission - 2.97 1st Gear will not work with the 96 mustang. This transmissions is designed for the use on a 99-04 mustang only.


well it work on my 5 speed mustang..? does it matter if my mustang is a 5 speed well a 6 speed still fit.. or would I need to buy other stuff in order to make it fit.?


Helpful (0)
  • Of course, but you'll need to change out your tranny crossmember, bellhousing, shortened driveshaft (how short depends on year) with a 31 spline shaft, and a 26 spline clutch and pressure plate.

    Amazing transmission

    Excellent shift quality, and the 2.97 1st throws you in the seat hard, especially behind a 408w. Recommend this over any transmission out there
