Spinning pretty hard in 4th the other day and she caught some traction. Finally had some time to tear it apart today, this is the outcome





Whats my best option to hold the power im around. Stock nv5600 hold up with a nice clutch or should I be looking into a 48 swap? Looking for some other input maybe from people who have done them? Im tossing both ideas around currently.

If you have the funds, do the re swap. If not 5600 SHOULD hold...

it's easily double the money compared to the NV which is the only real set back. But another thing is I don't want to mess with it. Last thing I wanna do after working on cars all day is go home and work on my own crap!

Ocasional towing nothing crazy mostly daily driver/toy never track it but it sees a lot of abuse around town. Honestly somewhat suprized it lasted as long as it did. And power wise Yeah most likely maybe some bigger injectors and proper tuning eventually

Nothing crazy like boiling the tires in 4th at boost with a modded hot rod Cummins with bro dozer tires and hooking up hard instantly.....lol. Can't understand why that pos just fell a part?....
Prolly just installed all those go fast parts last week and never even squealed the tires before this........

Were you running a torque shield on the tranny?

I'd say go the Re route, unless your dead set on keeping it a hand shaker. The NV holds up good until your spinning and catch traction. I blew 3rd in a NV 4500 in my 98 3 times due to spinning 35's and high boost (never had a problem with any other gear) Nv5600's are pretty stout but new old stock parts are hard and expensive to find and New aftermarket parts aren't usually as strong as the original parts unless treated/cryo'd. The re route is gonna cost more in the beginning but it will be faster and if driven sensibly will probably be cheaper in the long run due to less broken parts if its built properly.

There's quite a few guys making big power with a g56. A Valair ceramic triple disc and a torque shield should help keep it alive

I dont not believe the gears can just be replaced. I think the whole main shaft would need to be bought,

The Mopar parts catalog shows the gears on the input shaft and main shaft are all available individually (although it appears that the front gear on the input shaft is part of the shaft itself).

But you are correct regarding the countershaft; it is apparently only available as a complete kit, with the shaft and all four gears.

Maybe a junkyard trans would be the best bet.

I just broke my NV5600 for the second time and am going to a 47 or 48 re this time around, so if you want to rebuild a NV I know of one that will be up for sell pretty cheap here soon.

Countershaft cluster gears are available in sets.

Well didn't realize this forum was filled with a bunch of trolls. I'm not dumb I'm aware things break when your in a situation like that. Normally when It spins I let out of it. I was unaware toyos are what people refer too as "brodozer" tires but they get great life and overall suite my needs pretty well on and off road. I don't belive I said my trans fell apart like I wasn't expecting it. Or I was ever down talking it simply asking what other options will outlast the g56. Thank you for your childish input though

Anyone who was curious I'll be going with a NV5600 after all is said and done I'll be roughly the cost of a new clutch extra into with a reman nv5600 vs a reman g56. Deciding factor was really just enjoying the manual
