If you wanted to PM me, we could discuss it. I'm letting it go at a huge loss (50% of what I paid, not including my engineering time) with directions on how to properly complete the setup.

Cool

The Last Bombshell for a While
  • Transmission Selection: Tremec T56 Magnum 6060 w/ 2.66 1st, 0.63 6th Gear Ratios
  • Clutch: (Same) Ogura Racing ORC 559D
  • Ogura Racing ORC Center Hub Cam for T56 Spline Input Shaft


Just made this pic for a Facebook thread, but replace CD009 w/ T56 Spline and it's golden...
  • Starter: (OEM) Turbo II
  • Bola De Homo Racing 13BT to T56 Adapter Plate


Works with Manual Rear Iron. I'm in!
  • Sikky 4" Shifter Relocation Kit
  • 3.25" CF Driveshaft Shop Shaft
  • Minor Tunnel Clearancing
  • 225/45-17 Front w/ Caster Reduction to fit a 25" tall tire
  • 255/40-17 or 255/45-17 Rear to properly fill out factory fender
  • All The Boost...

Why T56 as opposed to 13BT tranny? Clutch setup looks dope.

Power Handling. It's not a T56, it's the TR6060 which can shift over 6k reliably (the standard T56 cannot). Proven over 9-10k shifts without notchiness.

Simply put, I'll shred the Turbo II transmission at these proposed power levels. This has been my weak link all along and I haven't found a PROPER solution until today, which I'm stoked on. This allows me to use everything Turbo II except for the transmission body, which is perfect. I'll have two nice Turbo II S4 transmissions for sale if anyone wants one. Reasonably priced + buyer pays shipping.

With the new setup, I'll aim for 650whp/500wtq. I'll purely run wastegate pressure on the Turbo II transmission and backyard built driveshaft until I get money to do it right with the Tremec Magnum (TR6060) and 3.25" CF Driveshaft.

Acquiring the necessary parts for a backup motor built to kick some serious ***...

It's still 13BT.

It's going to be able to handle my goals without a doubt.

I still haven't had any luck getting my car into fabrication (and it's pre-paid). The season is busy, gotta roll with it.

Yep. Some things, like this build, are too slow.

My weekend job is ending and all of my "spare" money is going to disappear. There's roughly 15k in fabrication and parts to get the car back on the road + 100s of hours of my personal labor doing all the plumbing, wiring, sound insulation, heat insulation, etc with just keeping a FACTORY sound system.

So I'm selling off everything spare I've accumulated in a firesale, hopefully to get enough for the Tremec T56 Magnum, adapter plate, and custom broaching (machining) on the Ogura Clutch center hub to fit the Tremec Input Shaft.

As for me, I'm hustling my butt off and applying to new jobs every day.

Instead of broaching, we'll do Wire EDM for the Center Hub cutting. Probably a $500 venture, but gotta pay to play.

I really want to do an Obsidian Labs S5 LIM to S6 UIM Adapter so I gain the S6 Secondary Throttle Plates and can control them like a Honda IAB setup.

This works by having the secondaries closed until a certain RPM/Load range in which plenum volume is decreased, intake velocity is increased, and TORQUE/RESPONSE are improved dramatically. Essentially, this is what made VTEC so ******' loud on Hondas in factory trim. It's the last piece of the puzzle to really get a responsive motor package on a relatively large turbo.

Same DBW, but a solenoid to control the FD UIM secondary throttle blades. Having them shut under low loads and under a certain RPM point will greatly increase idle vacuum and response of the configuration.

While I'm at it, I can send the whole setup off to SBS Performance for plenum modifications and hand porting throughout. *Maybe*

Still waiting on Obsidian Labs to get back to me. It doesn't work without them.

​​​​​Just like my transmission doesn't work without getting proper input shaft spline dimensions off the T56 Magnum.

This is what my setup will look like soon:




Car is still next in line for fabrication on the exhaust manifold.

Picking up the pace here, I've tracked down Shawn of Obsidian Labs for the S5 LIM to S6 UIM adapter, ordered up an S6 (FD) UIM with all it's original solenoids/vacuum pots, and am parting out a bit of my extra garage stuff to help others get back on the roads.

If anyone is hunting down engine parts, let me know and I'll see what I have. Even selling a spare S5 Turbo II block that's streetported with 0mi on it.

It's not like my setup has been lacking in the intake manifold department, but I think for simplicity of the engine bay and tuning (if 3rd stage injection still isn't added over in the next firmware update), I might be better off going with the following configuration:

FC LIM from Elite Rotary w/ 4 Injector Fuel Rail which should directly bolt to FD UIM
Call Paul Yaw on replacing the 2x ID1700x 34-14 Injectors in the Pico Bungs to 2x ID1700x 48-14 Injectors for the Elite Rail
FD UIM w/ Double Throttle Plate Controlled Via Solenoid on RPM/Load
GM LS3 DBW TB

Uhh, finalize fabrication?

I assume the case needs a bit of trimming to fit the TII starter? Does the input shaft suit an RX-7 pilot bearing?

I must say it isn't the prettiest looking setup, but I've heard a lot of people trash the common aftermarket bell housings. It definitely looks headache free and that is the most important part! I just rebuilt and upgraded a TII trans but I'm not sure I want to waste my time with another one, looking for numbers in the same neighborhood...

Keep up the good work!

I'm sure I could find it on the googlenets but I'm lazy so I figured I'd ask here:

What's the weight of that trans config? Base wiring for the FD will be done soon so its on to drivetrain next and even though I've got a rebuilt FD trans I might decide to get snazzy with a 6 speed.

I think it's something like 65lbs more. The T2 Transmission is 80lbs Dry without shifter. I believe this is 135lbs + T2 Bellhousing, so probably in the neighborhood of 145lbs.

I believe zero modification besides of course the transmission mount and my unique clutch wire edm/broaching issue. How much do you stare at your transmission? I don't think it needs to be attractive, although I don't see it as ugly. I see it as badass and functional.

Sweet ****, so only about 40ish lbs heavier than the FD trans. Danke.

Exactly, and it's centered at the lowest point of the car. Totally not worried about the weight there. It's actually cheaper than building a beefy T2 box, yet has triple synchros, silent operation, and a new warranty. Oh, and the gearing is PERFECT.

And doesn't shift like a truck like the FC box does! Nice updates.
