Is TKO tremec? And what about rebuilding a your T5 into a T5 world class?
In my opinion, the T-5 case is plenty strong for most applications. I've never seen one broken for any reason other than external trauma.Random question = What are the weakest links in a T5? I have read about the cases not holding. But, what else tends to go?
First, I want to correct what I typed above. It is the bore of the rear countershaft bearing that sometimes allows that race to spin in the case and wallow out the hole and not the main shaft bearing. Yes, they both can do it, but the countershaft bearing is the trouble spot.The bore for the rear main shaft bearing tends to wallow out under some conditions...
All well-said except Astro and GForce make the custom gear sets for the T-5. That is why their units are stronger. Promotion doesn't make gears. If they build a strong T-5 it had better have gears in it from Astro or GForce. If not, they are just telling you that it is strong. If they don't tell you exactly what is inside, you really don't know what you have, do you?I got a TKO and added the carbon fiber blocker rings and she shifts pretty nice but still not as nice as a T5. Also those are an option and increase the price of an already steep tranny. If my car didn't already have a TKO in it when I bought it I would've gotten a Promotion T5.
