C7 of Year Finalist (track prepared) 2019
Default Katech's Sequential Manual Gearbox - the first in a C7 production car

To our knowledge, this is the first SMG in a C7 outside of the Corvette Racing team. It is a 6-speed based on the TR6060, adapted to the C7 by Katech. It is absolutely awesome, and so fun to drive. The reduction in shift time is incredible. In our test car, we hit 132mph on the back straight of M1 Concourse. In my Z06 I hit 135mph with 200 more horsepower and a better run on it out of the corner. I need this for my car for sure.








Katech's new Sequential Manual Gearbox for the C7 Corvette allows for sequential no-lift, clutchless upshifts and rev-matched downshifts with the clutch. This means more time on the accelerator and less time shifting for quicker acceleration and domination on the track.


Features:
-PPG gear set with your choice of ratios (see tab)
-Assembly by RPM Transmissions
-PPG shifter
-PPG LCD gear indicator
-Xineering spark cut/rev match controller
-Katech C7 integration parts
-Transmission cooler lines
-Wiring harness
-Software

Requires TR6060 core (not included).
Requires manual transmission vehicle.
Torque tube not included.
Requires transmission tunnel modification.
Professional installation recommended.
Built to order. Please allow 2 months for build.

Thats badass! The upshifts sound amazing, those downshifts sound kinda harsh though.

So, what's your point? Money is no object in the pursuit of automotive excellence! Go for it.

That's not even the point. This guy is pushing the envelop. Money means nothing. He's not trying to sell anything. I applaud the heck out of him. Let's just watch awesome stuff happen!

Jason, considering the base trans was from a C6, what would prevent a C6 package from being developed?
