WIXOM, Mich., Aug. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- TREMEC, a subsidiary of KUO, today announced the acquisition of an innovative provider of plug-and-play EV conversion systems, Electric GT, Inc. The acquisition will enable TREMEC to strengthen its product offerings in the rapidly growing ICE-to-BEV

TREMEC is excited to announce the release of a TR-4050 5-speed transmission for two-wheel-drive applications. It’s perfect for truck and SUV enthusiasts looking to upgrade their two-wheel-drive vehicle from an old 3- or 4-speed manual transmission. It’s also a great way to upgrade from a factory 5-speed with a significantly stronger unit.

The Jeep Wrangler is an iconic off-road vehicle. But through the years, the various models haven’t always had the best manual transmissions. For example, the Jeep YJ (1987-1995 model years) and Jeep TJ (1997-2006) lacked a decent First gear ratio, and owners found the transmissions to be less durable once larger tires and weight were added to the Jeep, including heavier axles and other off-road equipment. The factory NSG370 6-speed transmission found in the Jeep JK (2007-2018) was better, but there was still room for improvement in the eyes of Wrangler enthusiasts. The superior First gear ratio and incredible strength of the TREMEC TR-4050 5-speed manual transmission has made it a desirable upgrade not only for the Jeep Wrangler, but also many other light trucks and 4x4 SUVs.

Owners of 3rd and 4th gen GM F-body cars don’t have to search through the salvage yards and classifieds any longer to find a usable T-56 6-speed. The new TREMEC Magnum-F 6-speed gives owners of the late-model Chevy Camaro and Pontiac Firebird a bolt-in manual transmission option capable of handling the power output of modern, high-performance engines.
