VE 2 SSV Redline wagon
I've searched high&low, and found conflicting info.
My ride, 2011 SSV Redline wagon has a transmission code MER on the plate.
Is this the T56 or the 6060??
If I , apparently, have an aftermarket clutch setup does it make no difference??
Sorry, I'm a bit of a revhed newbie.
Gurus, get in here!

Mine has the same code.

I believe it represents TR6060.

Thanks, VS. I thought so, but lots of weird info around the subject.

All ve v8s use the 6060 box don’t they?
I was of the understanding that early (Series I) had T56.

What trans code is on your build plate ?

TR6060 might have M10 on the build plate

The VE MY07-MY11 V8 sedans had the Tremec T56 box but where RPO coded M10 until the start of MY 11.
Manual 6 Speed Tremec (T56), 3.01 1ST, 5TH 0.84, 0.57 6TH, O/D, gearbox


For Sportwagon and Sedan V8 models....MY11 on

RPO code M10 is the Manual 6 Speed Tremec (T56) ratios, 3.01 1ST, 0.84 5 TH, 0.56 6TH, O/D, gearbox.

RPO Code MER is the Manual 6 Speed Tremec (TR6060) ratios, 3.01 1ST, 0.71 5 TH, 0.56 6TH, O/D, gearbox for the MY11 change over, and start of the Sportwagon production.


So in answer to the OP you have the Manual 6 Speed Tremec (TR6060) ratios, 3.01 1ST, 0.71 5 TH, 0.56 6TH, O/D, gearbox

Mines an M10 code also, I was told all VE v8s had the 6060 box but as always there’s a lot of misinformation out there
