They're radically different in strength, size and application. There's almost no resemblance between the two. The T56 is larger and stronger. The T5 is much weaker and smaller. I've heard of people pushing 800 RWHP on a T56 whereas it's not uncommon for stock 5.0's to break their T5 transmissions (repeatly!!!)
Originally posted by fbird95 Not sure if i believe that 800 hp on the T-56. You see guys with almost bone stock guys thrashing the T-56. With 800 hp they must really be babying it. I agree with everything else above though.
Neither the T-5 or the T-56 is really a true high quality trans, but the T-56 definatly takes a hell of a lot more abuse. The stock T-5 couldnt even handle the 87' IROC's 5.7 TPI torque.
Ehh, there are number of guys pushing high horsepower through a t-56. Couple of examples: Jordan musser and Rkrause both were pushing over 500rw driving the m6 and cutting sub 2.0 60".
