Rover V8 to Tremec TKO Gearbox Package

We have a 5 speed manual transmission package using the Tremec TKO transmission and designed for the Rover V8 engine producing high HP in conversions of TVR, Morgan V8, MGBV8, Cobra's and Hot Rods.  The Tremec TKO-500 and TKO-600 transmissions are the ideal choice for high HP Rover V8 engines.  The TKO 600 handles 100 lb/ft more torque than the TKO 500 gearbox which in turn has a higher torque rating than any of its model predecessors (the standard 3550, the TKO and the road race TKO11) all of which gained popularity as a high strength replacement for the T5’s.  Built to handle 600lb/ft of torque the updated transmissions benefit from being able to accomodate a number of shifter locations, provision for mechanical and electronic speedometer pick up, reverse lamp and neutral safety switches and a high performance, billet aluminium short throw shifter.  This shifter isolates road noise whilst providing a clean crisp feel together with a unique biasing system, which is adjustable for personal preference.

In order to achieve the increased torque capacity, the manufacturers now use a higher grade alloy steel (4615) on all gears and shafts, have increased the diameter on the output shaft to a 31 spline, and eliminated the woodruff keys on the countershaft by going to a one-piece design from the previous three piece.  The shift forks were also completely redesigned and are now all made from cast iron and use a three-pad contact system -virtually eliminating any deflection.  We have three choices of TKO transmission that will fit with our bellhousing, giving a variety of gear ratios.

TKO-600 Ratios are:
1st 1:2.87
2nd 1:1.89
3rd 1:1.28
4th 1:1.00
5th 1:0.82
Rev 1:2.56

There is an option to have a 0.64 ratio on the above transmission as well as the alternative ratios in the TKO-500
