Default 6spd.HD T-56tremec or Cobra Rtremec HD 5spd

I am gonna replace my tranny but have no idea what to go with. I want a manual tranny and want the best choice for my fox. I saw the two trannys in a magazine. Can anyone tell me what they know about the trannys or what other ooptions i can go with?

Mods are
TFS heads maxed out
gtp 40 intake maxed
3.73 gear

Just getting started Cam is on the way Snyder, Ischy, dont quite know yet

Well, the six speed will let you run a steep gear and still keep decent fuel mileage.

If you do a lot of interstate driving, I'd definately reccomend the viper 6spd as for the viper is the only one I know if that has a 0.50 6th. The tremac has 0.67 or 0.80 6th options only.

Happy with my 600hp Tremec TKO 600 - 5 speed
w/ 3.55 gears I'm right 2,500 rpm at 75mph going down freeway

Not as nice as a Viper spec T-56 but it only cost about 50% less at $1,600

There is also the G-Force T-5 rated at 500hp from Astro Performance

If you can afford the six speed go for it
