I have a 67 camaro with 4.11 gears and a 500 horsepower 355. Currently I have a turbo 350 auto but I want to switch to a 6 spd. Can the t-56 transmission handle 500 horsepower or is there another transmission I need to find?

The Viper T56 can, you will need to change the input shaft though. I've seen local guys here push 500+ through a T56 in a 98 Camaro. They are rated at 450, but i feel they would handle 500. Email me when you need to swap it, as i make an install kit for 1st gen cars.

Hey Boomer,
What happened to the T-56 that you hit 12's with on an earlier post?

I broke it. It doesn't want to go into second gear anymore and I don't know how to fix it. The only trans that I had was the turbo 350. I just want to know if it was a bad tranny or if it can't handle the power.

Sounds like you broke the syncroniser. Maybe not a bad trans but a bad driver?
