Tremec TKX 5-Speed Transmission – Ford Bench Seat Applications


Hanlon Modified Tremec TKX 5-Speed for Ford Bench Seat Applications

Shifter Location: Front where the transmission meets the bellhousing to the center shifter stem location = 12 11/16 (12.68in)



TREMEC is pleased to announce the release of the new TKX, a 5-speed RWD manual transmission developed solely for the aftermarket.

For the development of the new transmission, TREMEC engineers took a forward-looking approach to finding the best and most efficient solution. This included universal packaging, excellent shifting performance, and extreme durability.

The end result is superior shift-ability with smooth shifts at high RPMs through the use of multi-cone synchronizers and hybrid synchronizer rings. At the same time, noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) performance is optimized with a gear layout to best control stress levels, while providing structural stiffness with a ribbed, 3-piece aluminum housing. Durability is further optimized with oversized gear widths, gaskets at all flanges and caged needle bearings in all gear positions.

Whether restoring or upgrading a classic muscle car or a 1930s-era roadster coupe, the new TREMEC TKX 5-speed RWD manual transmission delivers a top-quality drivetrain solution.

If you’re looking for an easy way to add overdrive to your classic muscle car or truck equipped with a bench seat, the Hanlon modified TKX is the perfect design for the swap. With it’s streamlined case design and the removal of the mounting bosses on the lower section of the tail housing, this new Tremec TKX equipped with Tremec’s OEM Mid-Shift kit is installed for an easy modification free swap. This is perfect for kit Cobra’s, or vehicles equipped with a bench seat needing a front mount shifter (mid-shift) location.
