Hurst Driveline Conversions Tremec T-56 6-speed transmission

Whether it’s for the 5-speed Tremec TR3650 (2005-2010) or the 6-speed Getrag MT-82 (2011-2012), Hurst Driveline Conversions is providing S197 Mustang owners the option to switch out their stock transmissions for a new direct-shift Tremec T56 Magnum 6-speed transmission. Designed to rectify many of the Mustang’s stock transmission weak spots, the T56 Magnum draws from the combination of OE (Shelby GT500) and racing (Grand Am cup) technologies to provide increased performance and reliability. This marks Tremec’s most significant foray into the Mustang aftermarket since the days of emerging 5.0 Fox  Body performance.

Featuring an application-specific ‘direct-shift’ extension housing, the Magnum solves the issue of numb, inaccurate shifts offered by the S197 Mustang’s factory semi-remote shifter, replacing them instead with crisp, clean, confidence-inspiring throws. The S197′s exceptional driver ergonomics are maintained; along with the added ability to custom tailor shift action thanks to Tremec’s innovative adjustable-bias short throw shifter, standard on every new assembly. HDC kits include a Hurst branded shifter handle and 6-speed knob for an custom appearance.

Additional features include a slip yoke rear interface, eliminating the need for complex two-piece driveshafts, and an SFI-approved steel bellhousing for added safety in high-horsepower applications.  Installation is simple thanks to thoughtful design by Tremec engineers and a Tremec supplied swap-specific crossmember. In most cases customers can even retain their factory clutch release system. All Magnum series transmissions offer a generous 700 lb-ft torque capacity rating and the choice of two exclusive gear ratio combinations. Like all HDC kits, the new s197 Mustang system comes with an extended warranty and technical support. All conversions require a 26-spline clutch and a 1-piece driveshaft sold separately.

Retail pricing is listed at $3,495. For more details visit
