Hey everyone, I'm just wondering if anyone here has done this conversion? Basically I've come across a fairly cheap tr6060 that's only done 15000 ks and my t56 is horrible it's making me hate driving my car and I hate it, so its either rebuild the t56 or convert to the tr6060.

Will the tr6060 bolt straight in? Will I need to change or add anything?

Thanks in advance all help very much appreciated and please no hate.

If u can do it yourself and get it cheap - Why not.

Will it bolt straight in - Fairly certain yes. Later VE's came with it from factory, same as the HSV's. Best check to make sure your car doesnt have a TR6060 already.

Maybe speak to a gearbox specialist and get one specially made up / strengthened - if you're going to do it, may as well look at the 'gold standard' option aswell and compare prices.

As I am saving my 5c coins for this very problem I am going to do a TR6060 swap or get a strengthened one due to track day damage.
