Product Details

Tremec Ford TKO500 Heavy duty Five speed Single overdrive Transmission

TREMEC's TKO series of 5-speed transmissions was first made famous by the 5-liter Mustang movement and has since been fitted into nearly every rear-wheel drive performance application imaginable. Serving up 500 lb-ft of torque capacity, along with confidence-inspiring shifts and fuel-saving overdrive, the TKO offers an ideal blend of brute strength and street manners – which may be why it's the manual transmission behind more boulevard-bruising street machines and sportsman race victories than all of it's competitors combined.

Based on the 3550 family of five speed, Tremec up the game in 2004 with a TKO500 to replace the "TKO"  Same gear ratio with a 3.27:1 first gear for those that have taller axle ratio or wishing to come out of the "hole" faster. Dubbed the wide ratio of the TKO with a .68:1 (32%) 5th gear over drive.  If you are making over 400hp and need a updated from your four speed this is the transmission for you.
