Thanks! I just sent Josh an email to see if he can hook me up when the time is right. Looks like so far for parts Ill be pushing around $4500 but thats not to bad to get what I want, Im going to contact a few dealers and see if they offer a T-56 with the spline that I need. Ill post back later this week after I get some more info

Sounds good. He's REALLY busy so he might not get right back to you IDK. I just drove up to L&M Customs yesterday from FL and went by HHP last night. There are a lot of high hp cars in there.

I'm curious to see what you use for the shifter. The Tremec shifter is pretty short.

Ill use a hurst pistol grip that I have that came out of a 2500 diesel It looks like similar bolt pattern, if it wont fit Ill machine and adapter or even cut and weld it to work, I have access to a full fab shop with manual mill and lathe so most fab work will be easly done by myself

Ok after some more digging looks like I need the T56 with a 26 spline input shaft 31 spline out put shaft, also need a challenger bell housing, 130 tooth 8 bolt flywheel, 10.5" clutch and pressure plate, from the measurements I might have to re surface the bell housing to get the input shaft to penetrate the pilot bearing deep enough for proper support/allignment.

All the t-56s are 26 input/31 output so you are good there. I don't know which would work better - the Magnum or the Magnum XL.

Any cmr dealer can check the box for manual transmission when building a tune.

I think Ill just stick with the Magnum or a used low mileage t56, the xl looks like it might be a little bit to long considering the srt10s use the standard t56 it should be fine.

That is info I needed to know, I was starting to get worried about the line pressure and other sensors causing me major issues, Ive sent some emails to a few guys that do custom tunes, Ill post back what they say when I hear back from them.
