1. Bolt-In Underdash Hydraulic Clutch & Pedal System
American Powertrain now offers new Hydramax applications for five- and six-speed GM models. This Hydramax kit is designed for a wide variety of the ’64-72 GM A-body, ’67-81 GM F-body, and ’62-74 Nova, all equipped with five- and six-speeds. There are many other Hydramax kits available for other GM models, including ’55-57 Chevys.

The new Hydramax kit includes a master cylinder, clutch pedal, lines, and a billet Hydramax hydraulic slave cylinder bearing. The conical slave cylinder is pre-bled, dual-sealed, and comes with shims to adjust the distance to the clutch fingers for any type of clutch setup. Included is a billet reservoir to finish out the installation. These kits work with any TREMEC transmission, including the T5, TKO/TKX, and T56 Magnum six-speed. The included clutch pedal allows for easy conversion to hydraulic or an automatic car to manual. The hydraulic pedal is also available for purchase separately, with no hydraulic slave.

2. Upgrade With Carbon
Bowler Performance Transmissions now offers a new Carbon Edition TREMEC Magnum six-speed and TKX five-speed upgrade package. The Carbon Edition package is designed to improve the transmission’s ability to handle higher horsepower/torque loads and/or extreme-use environments, like Road Course and Auto-X racing. According to Bowler you will notice a much better shift feel and ability to shift at higher rpm under these heavier loads on the transmission, plus quieter operation and less vibration. These benefits with the Carbon Edition package are an excellent upgrade for any application where you want the best possible performance out of your new TREMEC trans.
