I’ve been in love with the American Powertrain White Lightning shifters since they first came out for the Tremec T56. They shift like butter, and allow the smoothest quickest shifts you can imagine in a clutch assisted transmission, which makes them epic fun in something with a T56 Magnum in it. They are absolutely phenomenal. So it only makes sense that with the release of the new Tremec TKX 5-Speed, which is the first Tremec 5-speed capable of 8,000 rpm or higher shifts, that a new White Lightning would be coming to the party. And here it is. Remember, this isn’t just a super smooth and fast shifter, it’s also the ultimate in adjustability. Make it fit the car, and your shifting style, with simple adjustments that will make you a speed shifting master.
New White Lightning TREMEC
TKX 5-Speed Shifter
Cookeville, TN American Powertrain’s all new White Lightning shifter for TREMEC TKX 5-speed transmission. The new TKX already shifts smoothly out of the box but American Powertrain takes it to the next level. Bolting on a White Lightning shifter shortens the shift by 30% and allows multiple shifter positions.
White Lightning shifters feature American Powertrain’s patented RevLok system that locks the offset in place, and independent adjustable centering springs that allow the customer to tailor the shift feel within seconds ensuring a lightning quick 2-3 shift action. This unique shifter has billet construction throughout with a two-piece aluminum body and a weighted billet steel shifter core providing excellent feedback and durability at the limit. Stainless steel countersunk fasteners and the lowest profile of any TKX shifter ensure excellent clearance for tight tunnels.
American Powertrain’s Revolution shifter has an eight-way adjustable offset, is available in four lengths, and covers a full 64 shift positions including most stock 4-speed and custom console locations for GM, Ford and Mopar.
The White Lightning Shifter is available in American Powertrain ProFit transmission kits or can be purchased separately for any existing TKX 5-speed transmission. Prices start at $329.
