Cookeville, TN (May 10, 2009)… The Tremec™ TKO 5-Speed is legendary for its durability and has become a prime choice for adding a modern 5-speed to classic, sports and pony cars. Some engine and chassis combinations, however, require an even stronger transmission than the stock TKO. Enter the TKOExtreme™ by American Powertrain, a fully synchronized 1000hp rated TKO with improved 2-3 shift selection.
Based on the TKO600, the TKOExtreme features a cryo hardened 4616 chromoly gear set, shafts, and input, Sure Shift™ polished synchronizers, REM polished and profiled shift fingers and hardened steel shift forks all assembled to race tolerances by a single craftsman.
Excellent for monster engines and 200mph 1-mile drags, the TKOExtreme also tolerates higher rpm shifts than the stock TKO and comes with AP’s 24-month warranty and 24/7 Customer First™ tech support.
Available with either the .64 overdrive gear for cruising and top speed runs or the shorter .82 gear for on-power 5th gear performance, the TKOExtreme retails for $3195 or can be added to any of American Powertrain’s ProFit kits as a $1000 upgrade.
