Torn between Cd009 and t56

Doing an LS swap into my s13. Im torn between a CD009 and a T56.

I see a lotta guys rockin the CDs and Ive searched but cant find why.
They seem to have a closer gear ratio than the T56.
Are closer gear ratios better for drifting, Or would further gear ratios be better for the power I?ll be making (hopefully around 325-350 and even more in the distant future)?

If anyones had experience with these trannys or even just heard something about them, Id love to hear it. Thanks all you gurus out there

It's really ratio matching and what you plan to run for power/rear end. Obviously things need to mesh. It also will depend on your budget. T56 is a direct mount with no crazy modifications or bell housing conversions needed while he CD does. You can still [to my knowledge] get both brand new but the T56 will cost you more. Some people justify it as it will cost the same to acquire either setup [within reason/what's available] but if you decide to replace what you got with something brand new, the CD will be cheaper in the long run.

im not trying to sound like a dick... but asking people to buy things "brand new" anymore is like a foreign concept! when something is $800 brand new, the majority still look for the $300 used solution (even though they bitch when it breaks after a few months because its so badly abused). the notion of saving the extra $500 is like a foreign concept! even though if they had spent another 2-3 months saving the extra $500 to buy it new and having it perform without error or problem for years to come, the notion of saving that extra money is beyond comprehension!


sorry, drunk and bitching!

Are you primarily asking about the CD only? Cause I have a short shifter in my T56 and I love it. Added cost but worth it, and the T56 doesn’t have a fucking beer gut that hangs super low like the CD.

Welp, good news. I buy things new and beat the shit out of them myself. This way, I know that everything inside is current OEM spec and not a mystery mod or rigged to make it work for a day and a half. Plus, it's reliability and some have warranties on them. If it's a staggering amount, sure. I'll try my go at something used but never will I buy a key component like a crank or something intricate like a transmission used if the price difference isn't a crazy amount.

Lol That?s whats up, what kinda power you runnin? I?m asking about both. In searching I found a super cheap, low mileage viper T56 (that?s supposed to be stronger than regular t56) but unfortunately the gears are Even Wider than standard T56. I?m wondering if I can get away with it. If not, it?ll prolly be T56 magnum because everyone?s asking way too damn much for an old, unknown condition, used t56 transmission. I went to buy one and asked the guy to open the case....there was shredded metal all over the damn place. The guy still wanted like $1,300 for it lmao

As for the CD I don?t see what?s so great about it besides it being newer and having closer gears. You gotta buy the adapter...Can?t find any rebuild kits at all when I search. So I?m wondering if the closer gears are what draws people to it for drifting.

Definitely not the case here for a slightly older guy like me. I like the ?buy once, cry once? approach. I like quality parts like SPL. The newibie kids I talk too think I?m wrong for buying parts like SPL because ?it?s too expensive, you should buy ISR cuz it?s cheaper?. I?ve never owned ISR but ive owned PBM arms, stance arms and other low end shit. What they don?t realize is, sure it?ll work.... but check them out in a year or two. Out of all the arms I?ve owned, the SPL are the only arms where the bearings haven?t rusted to crap. And I don?t even live up north!

I?m going to be running the stock 4.08 diff and a 5.3 LS (L33) for sure. Only thing up in the air is the Trans/clutch/shifter(prolly going to try to fabricate a shifter since sikky shifter is like $500). I already have a sikky swap kit for LS/T56 so I?m leaning that way, but if the CD is worth it I?m open to it.

If you do in fact go CD, Serial9 is the shifter you want.

You and me both. I have full SPL and I also have KW coils. Sure they were expensive but the parts are nice and they last

I would totally buy brand new t56 to make sure i have a good transmission instead of hoping it wont crap out

Oh yeah, how do you like em? I gotta get a new set of coils.

I bought the Powered By Max ?Pro? coilovers and I fucking hate them. I bounce in mid drift and the worst part is they sent me shorter rear dampeners than the front. They wouldn?t honor a return. My rear is so short I could only install it 3-4 threads deep so I won?t be on the damn ground. When I called and complained they told me ?they?re not meant for performance, only getting slammed? in their ?pro? coil pics the rear is obviously longer than the front, like all other s13 coilovers. PBM is trash. Hope they go out of business. End of rant

I've seen some pretty catastrophic shit with their angle kits at the track. They must be using recycled animal bones or something.
