Today we will be going over one of our manual 6 speed TR-6060 transmission rebuilds. This manual transmission is from a 2008 Chevrolet C6 Corvette Z06. This style TR-6060 transmission is correct for the 2008-2013 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 models.
To start this build out, we first secure the transmission so it will not move while we work on it. From here we start to remove the end cover as shown to get into the internals.
With the cover removed we can start taking the gears out one at a time. With those internals removed we can then removed the center housing and set it to the side.

With the center case removed, we can start tearing down the remaining internals. Once those are done we have finished the dismantling of the transmission and are now ready to start the rebuild.
All transmission builds are created from brand new TREMEC T56 Magnum-F's, NO USED transmissions EVER. These are then built to your specs. Choose the power level you need. GR700 This is a brand new T56 Magnum-F direct from the Tremec factory, and I match the big box store prices. Our TR6060 conversion offers a direct bolt-in solution for the C5 Corvette that utilizes the factory differential. If you’re looking to step it up to the next level, ask about our 08+ TR6060 transmission that uses the stronger C6 differential.
Now with the rebuild of this transmission about to begin, you need to make sure you have your replacement parts ready to go. For our build we decided to replace all the syncros, both the input and counter shaft. We also replaced the front cover as well as the pump that is mounted to it. Do not forget as with any rebuild that gets done you should replace all the seals and with this one we even upgraded the blocker rings on this transmission.
As we stated in the last step, we ended up upgraded the blocker rings to a carbon blocker ring set. The picture shows the old style on the left and the new carbon ones on the right. We replaced both input and counter shaft due to the old ones showing signs of ware when we started the build.
At this point we start to install the first set of internals back onto the base plate. Its very important to make sure that each part gets installed in the correct order.
With this section of the internals installed the center case is then placed back onto the base plate and bolted back down. Everything should fit together just right if it was put back together correctly.
Now with the center section of the case snugged down, we can start installing the next set of internals. Again make sure that everything goes back in the correct order.

At this point the final thing to do is reinstall the last section of the housing. This then finishes the whole build from start to finish.
