The Ford Motor Company manufactured the C6 transmission between 1966 and 1996. It is quite similar to the C4 transmission, but can handle higher power outputs. It was initially used in larger trucks and cars that had large engines, but today it is primarily used in drag race cars.
C6 value transmission specifications
As the name implies, the C6 stock transmission uses a stock torque converter and stock bin. It has a stall speed of 1,800 rpm and a two-wheel drive slip yoke for its rear casing, but it doesn’t have a hard input shaft. The power of the C6 series transmission has been measured at 300 horsepower, while the engine torque has been calculated at 250 nM.
C6 Dominator Transmission Specifications
The C6 Dominator transmission is made with a # 2F torque converter. Like the C6 Stock, this transmission uses a stock pan and two-wheel drive slide yoke, and does not use a hard input shaft. The Dominator has stall speeds between 1,800rpm and 2,800rpm, however, and uses a Super Servo “R” instead of the Stock servo on the Stock model. The Dominator is also a more powerful transmission, having a power rating of 500 and a torque power of 450nM.
C6 Dominator Extreme Transmission Specifications
The Dominator Extreme version of the C6 transmission is more powerful than the Stock or Dominator models, as it has a torque of 600 nM and a power rating of 650. Unlike previous C6 models, the Dominator Extreme does not have a torque converter. , but use a saucepan. Like the Dominator transmission, it uses a Super Servo “R” and, like the previous two versions, uses a two-wheel drive sliding yoke. The Dominator Extreme is the first of the three transmissions to use a rigid input shaft. It has a nominal power of 650 and a torque of 600 nM.
C6 Mega Dominator Drive Specifications
The final manifestation of the C6 transmission was the Mega Dominator model, the most powerful transmission of the four. It uses a 1200 horsepower, 1000 torque nM torque converter and has stall speeds between 2600 rpm and 6000 rpm. Like the Dominator and Dominator Extreme C6, it uses a Super Servo “R”. Like the Dominator Extreme, it uses a hard input shaft, but unlike any previous C6 model, it uses a # 91 Ford racing cast aluminum pan and a bolt-on short yoke or two-wheel drive sliding yoke for its back case . Its torque is 800 nM and its nominal power is 1,000 rpm.
