LSA Powered 1969 Camaro "Lou's Change" T-56 Magnum Transmission Install Video Pt.1 V8TV Trophies: 0 Give this video a trophy

In this installment of the "Lou's Change" 1969 Camaro build, the V8 Speed and Resto shop crew is installing the Tremec T-56 Magnum 6-speed manual transmission into the '69 Camaro. Although this car was originally a 4-speed manual, the modern 6-speed requires some different steps to install. The T-56 Magnum is the factory transmission behind the 640 HP Corvette ZR1, so we know it will be up to the task in our Camaro. We used a complete kit Modern Driveline after speaking with Bruce Couture about the considerations, including the size of the Toyo Proxes R888 tires and rear gear ratio of the Currie 9+ rear axle. The Modern kit came with the transmission, flywheel, clutch, bellhousing, shifter, electronic connections, fluid, hydraulic master cylinder and release bearing. We had to make some modifications to the Camaro's floor, and then we built a custom transmission cross member and used a Detroit Speed & Engineering hydraulic clutch master cylinder bracket to mount that part cleanly. This is the first part of the install.
