    For the guys in the know. What is all involved in bolting both stick and auto hellcat trans to a big block mopar? And it actually work
    I know the auto is size wize a lot bigger then the ol 727
    But im thinking more latley of putting one behind a big block in my cuda. Leaning more toward the m6.
    So do any of you know for fact the technical point of making it work?

    If you simply want a stout M6, just put a T56 Magnum behind your big block Mopar. several vendors out there that have everything you need.

    I dont want a stout m6. I want something that has a chance of standing up to 1000 + hp (motor not rear wheel) and I really like the m6 in our cat
    If that thing can stand up to the hp and 4500 pounds that out cats have. Then it should be ok for a 1000 hp 3000/3500 pound older muscle

    OK, I'll spell it out in more detail

    The M6 in the HC is a Tremec TR6060. Also known in the aftermarket, as the Tremec T56 Magnum.

    Ah, I forgot, this is the internet. A thousand apologies, for not spoon-feeding you the information.

    In my reply, I said, get a T56 Magnum. I made the tragic mistake of thinking you would google it.

    I think the A8 would be a complicated install. I'm guessing far to many electronic ecu's and control systems involved with this gearbox

    "Beat around the bush"? I told you exactly what Tremec trans you would need to buy in the aftermarket.

    Here's the number for APT, they can help you:

    tel: 931-646-4836 ext:107

    The GMG guys put a 2-speed Powerglide behind the HC 6.2, they did not use the A8.

    Seams il have to buy a ultra bell. Bellhousing to mount it
    Will be down the road. But would nice to know what problems the old mopars had in using the t56 magnum.
    Is the m6 setup in our cats. A dual disc setup?

    The motor that would be tranny would be asked to live behind. And the car the motor/tranny would be installed into
