Performance benefits 

Get the next gear every time! It’s not possible to get the wrong gear with this shifter. No more accidental 2-5 shifts costing races or 5-2 costing engines.
Our sequential shifter does not work by forcing the gearbox into gear and will actually apply less force to the internals than a standard shifter and far less miss shifts will drastically reduce gearbox wear. The shifter has been specifically designed for use with synchro gearboxes and the loads encountered under hard driving, you will not break this shifter!
The shift speeds are improved purely through the greatly improved usability for the driver. The simple pull back to up shift and push forwards to down shift is much easier to coordinate all movements under racing loads than the H-pattern shift. We have also optimised the design for the best driver feedback possible we do not add any rubber joints to give the driver a smoother feeling as in the performance application we would call that a vague shift

What’s included in this kit?

 

The basic kit includes everything you need to convert your gearbox to sequential shift including the shift knob but we do have some options :

  • ~ Precise mechanical feed back to the driver.
  • ~ Fast consistent shifting.
  • ~ Mechanical reverse lock out for safety and ease of installation.
  • ~ Option of 0-5V position sensor for use with data logging and electronic dash equipment this can also be used for gear-based boost settings and other applications.

Which gearboxes will this version fit?

This version is to suit what would be considered the early GM t56 cars and include the gearboxes from:

(Dimensioned drawings are available for you to check compatibility, all shifters fit gearboxes and not specific cars, you may need to modify the transmission tunnel to suit.)

What is included?

The basic kit includes everything you need to convert your gearbox to sequential shift including the shift knob but we do have some options :

  •  The gear indicator and sensor can be used to display what gear you are in.
  • The position sensor on its own can be used to display gear on many aftermarket displays)
  • Offset lever can be used to move the shift lever backwards or forwards this is recomended for vx-vz commodores
  • Shifter surround will help keep noise and fumes out of the car around the shifter opening.
  • The high linkage lever will give you a high mount lever  while maintaining the short thow and can move the lever backwards or forwards. This is mostly used for race cars and when the lever position needs to be moved further than about 70mm.

Instructions

Instructions can be downloaded as a pdf here T56 sequential shifter installation instructions.

Please see the street test at this link : Sequential shifter street test

All direct mount shifters are design to fit the gearbox and not a specific car, with direct mount shifters most require some trimming of the transmission tunnel and we have the “shifter surround” part available to seal this back up. In most cars the shifter will clear the interior trims and look neat once installed, if you can’t find a picture of a shifter installed in your model of car send us a message.

    It’s great. My downfall was I paid a genuine mechanical workshop to install it and they didn’t do it properly. Once it was fixed up it worked fine.

    Very happy with it, at the start was hard to make it select gears but turns out i was installing it incorrectly. Being a T56 in a Toyota MK2 wasn’t sure how it will go but i am very happy with it. Would 100% use again when i build a race car

    Very easy instruction to read. Found it quite easy to install. Had a little issue going in and out of 2nd gear but gearbox was on the ground and not stable. Quick call to the boss man and figure it’s probably gears not linking up properly. Attached gearbox to engine and with the extra weight and stability it shifts fine. Have not put into my car yet so will have to see how it lines up in a Vs ute
