The T56 magnum uses a push style clutch and a factory hydraulic release bearing. For my personal race car, the clutch side of the T56 swap was rather easy. I already had a Tilton clutch, so all I just swapped the hub out to fit the T56Magnum input shaft and bought a new throwout bearing that fits the T56.
For most people, the Tilton is not within reach. While it is the baddest of the bad, it's also a very expensive clutch.
So, for you guys that are looking to start from scratch or swap out a push style clutch to this transmission I now have affordable options. Single, Twin, and Triple disc applications custom built for the 2JZ to T56 Magnum swap with a push-style hydraulic throw out bearing.
I have been in talks with a few different clutch companies and finally decided to go with Clutchmasters. All of their clutches are made in the USA company and they were willing to work with me exclusively to setup a 2JZ T56 swap clutch kit that will work perfectly for the guys making big horsepower and torque but still want a street-able clutch setup.
All three clutches will come with a chromoly flywheel, and a push conversion kit with hydraulic throw-out bearing. No more snap ring pull style clutch garbage! These are 8.5" clutches and offered in different power/torque ratings based on your needs and driving style. A single disc for 99% street cars, a twin disc for the big power guys, and a triple disc for the ridiculous power cars.
My website now lists all three clutches as an option in all the T56Magnum kits. So now, these T56 swaps are 100% end-to-end bolt in setup.

So now that I have all these cool clutch options, I have yet another transmission swap project coming! I like the T56 magnum in my supra so much, that my 2JZ swapped rx7 is getting a T56Magnum now. I will be putting my twin-disc street setup in the car along with my Level1 transmission kit. More to come!
