The '06s are looking better all the time! But has anyone actually broken the T-56 in a V? Besides the sloppy shifter in the V, the T-56 has proven to be quite bullet proof, even in higher HP cars(03+ Mustang Cobras, Vipers). I would have rather seen a MUCH beefier rear.

Depends what you mean by broke I guess. I'm on my second T56 in the V because of it not wanting to engage reverse. On the other side of the spectrum I never had a single problem with it on my supercharged Z06.

not on a CTS-V but i bent the 3-4 shift fork in my 2002 ZO6. Until 2003 it was an aluminum piece, i then had them replace it with the upgraded steel one. though i did bend it while road racing if that is any consilation. was having trouble heel/toeing into 3rd on 1 particular corner so i was just jamming it in there, so i shared responsibility for the carnage, but chevy bailed me out...

Revised shifter precision (M12)

Tolerances for the shifter mechanism for the Cadillac CTS-V application have been tightened to make the shifter feel more precise.

Did anyone catch that?

With no one having driven one yet, its hard to say that the slop is fully removed. Perhaps there will still be advantages in the '06 to buying a UUC, Mallet, or B&M shifter.

We'll have to wait and see. The other changes sound very minor. I'm not sure I even understand what "lighter feeling engagement is". I think the engagement (as well as clutch pedal pressure) both feel too light already.
It's not granny's cadillac after all!

Having recently spent an hour in stop & go freeway traffic, my left calf votes for lighter engagement!

Do you really think this clutch has a heavy engagement, or did you just mean clutching in traffic is tiresome (tiring, too).

I think it engages late, and across a short distance, and the feel is light (not what I would describe at "postitive" feel). Those who slip the clutch to avoid wheelhop, I'm curious how that works, as except for the ka-jerk that the flywheel introduces, it seems, well not quite on/off, but certainly with lots of pedal travel before engagement.

Perhaps I'm not describing the feel in the clearest of terms, but I still think the pedal feels light.

I tore second gear out of mine doing donuts. The clutch pedal was stuck to the floor and I slammed it into 2nd. This trans should have no problem bolting up 2 an 04' should it. I'm about to warranty mine anyways.

As opposed to Getrag, I dont Tremec would have any problem 'upgrading' a V trans if you sent it to them for a fee.... as GM doesent 'own' them like they do Getrag.:annoyed:
