Word has it there is a new 5-speed transmission in town. The TREMEC TKX to be exact. TREMEC is best known for its historically popular aftermarket transmissions such as the Magnum T-56 and the T-5. This TKX, however, has a completely brand new design. It was built from the ground up to be a strictly aftermarket transmission.
Key Features of the TKX
The TKX is designed to fit custom builds as well as classic muscle cars due to its compact and streamlined case. The TKX also features a triple cone synchronized design that it carried over from the Magnum which allows for smoother shifting. Since this aftermarket transmission is capable of shifting at 7,500 rpm it can easily handle 600 ft/lbs of torque. Another nifty feature of this new TREMEC TKX transmission is that is runs both electronic and mechanical speedometers. It’s electronic speedo output also doubles as a VSS. The TKX is also designed for multiple applications with little to no floor pan modifications, and the single overdrive reduces engine wear and fuel consumption ensuring a comfortable driving experience.
It doesn’t stop there! American Powertrain is also providing a mid-shift conversion as well as a new line up to their famous White Lightning shifter upgrades. The White Lightning Shifter features over 60 additional shifter locations to make sure you can easily get your TKX set up on your muscle car, truck, or custom project.
