American Powertrain Introduces TREMEC® Magnum XL 6-speed Transmission Conversion Kit for the 2010-2015 5th Gen Camaro V8

When it comes to gear jamming in your NMCA hot rod, many owners opt for the venerable TREMEC 6-speed Magnum XL transmission. This unit delivers positive, crisp shifting, improved gearing and power capacity designed to match many high-output combinations, all while allowing you to retain overdrive.
The product keeps getting better and now American Powertrain, the nation’s leading distributor of TREMEC® transmissions, offers a TREMEC GM Magnum XL 6-speed transmission conversion kit for any 2010-2015 5th Gen Camaro (SS) equipped with a V8 engine. This kit can be purchased with a choice of two gear sets as a replacement for the TR-6060 and is rated at over 700 lbs/ft torque with close to 8,000-RPM shift capacity.
Matt Graves, American Powertrain Marketing and Sales Director says, “We’re excited to introduce this kit for 5th Gen Camaros. I think there’s a lot of pent-up demand for an upgrade and the difference will be very noticeable.”
Developed as a performance upgrade, the Magnum XL transmission features a direct-mounted shifter that replaces the old 6060 shifter linkage to improve shifting for lightning-fast acceleration, making it ideal for performance street applications and racing.
American Powertrain’s new conversion kit includes an aluminum LS bellhousing, clutch kit, and bolt-in OE style hydraulic bearing with a correct fitting to the OE master cylinder, speedo harness, reverse lockout and back-up light harnesses, White Lightning shifter with the correct shifter offset to fit the factory shifter opening, 1350 yoke, rear driveshaft flange adapter, new driveshaft, crossmember spacers and transmission mount.
Optional parts include a scatter shield, billet steel or aluminum flywheel, twin-disc clutch, extreme upgrade for the Magnum up to 1100 lbs/ft of torque, plus shifter ball and handle.
The Magnum XL transmission, with its extra-long tail housing, is an aftermarket version of the TR-6060 that was widely used in modern muscle cars. The XL with its longer tail housing moves the shifter over 8-inches back from the original Magnum’s location. It has a unique shift isolator that improves dampening for a smooth precision shift feel and a rigid direct-mount shifter for quick, crisp shifting. Either gear set, part numbers, TUET18131 and TUET18132, can be paired with the American Powertrain’s Magnum XL conversion kit.
