Yes, to answer in short the T56 is a better transmission. The transmission is a tough. But if you are looking to UPGRADE, then look into the new magnum transmission. They sell a conversion kit for 99-04"s comes with everything needed.

+1

Other option include the tko500/600. If I find 2750$ I'm going to throw in the t56 with the .50 6th ratio.

Yeah that's the trans but I've found them much cheaper than that.

So you found the complete conversion for cheap? Then I have to ask where? Because I'm interested.

A local performance dealer quoted me a complete conversion for 2650$ with warranty and clutch/flywheel. (Garbage clutch tho...) I've seen conversions on ebay for cheaper too. A roommate bought a used t56 out of a cobra for 900$ had it rebuilt for 300$ and all in he had it in his 99 cobra for 1650$ish. I would love the swap. That .50 6th ratio is awesome...

But the Magnum T56 is a better trans. There conversion comes with aluminun driveshaft crossmember, etc and its a new trans.

The t56 they put in the cobras was a codename 'magnum trans' as for new vs used... they are pretty easy to overhaul. So before the swap just rebuild it.
