American Powertrain offers Camaro Tremec GM Magnum XL six-speed transmission conversion kit

American Powertrain now offers a Tremec GM Magnum XL six-speed transmission conversion kit for any 2010-2015 fifth-generation 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 lb./ft. torque with close to 8,000 RPM shift capacity. The Magnum XL transmission features a direct mounted shifter that replaces the old 6060 shifter linkage, for what the company says is an improvement in shifting and acceleration.

American Powertrain’s new conversion kit includes the following parts: 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, 1350 yoke, rear driveshaft flange adapter, new driveshaft, crossmember spacers and transmission mount.

Optional parts include a Scattershield, Billet steel or aluminum flywheel, twin disk clutch, an extreme upgrade for the Magnum up to 1100 lb./ft. of torque, and shifter ball and handle. 

The Magnum XL transmission with its extra-long tail housing is an aftermarket version of the TR-6060. The XL has a longer tail housing that moves the shifter more than 8 in. back from the original Magnum’s rear location. Either gear set—part numbers TUET18131 and TUET18132—can be paired with American Powertrain’s Magnum XL conversion kit. 

“We’re excited to introduce this kit for fifth-gen Camaros. I think there’s a lot of pent-up demand for an upgrade and the difference will be very noticeable,” said Matt Graves, American Powertrain marketing and sales director.
