This should be the only Tremec Magnum transmission (Magnum-F) anybody with a first generation Camaro should be considering when swapping to a T56 nowadays.
When purchasing a new unit from Bowler or Jody's , why the Magnum-F over just the Magnum?

that's strange. I have an LT4 with the Quicktime bellhousing on a DSE subframe using all Holley mounts/swap hardware and did not have to modify the tunnel. Like you, I originally had a 98-02 F-Body T56 that I swapped out for the Magnum-F and had no new tunnel fitment issues.

What "two other shifter positions" are you talking bout? The Magnum-F only has one other shifter opening, just like the original 98-02 F-Body T56. The Magnum-F does have a thicker cast aluminum cover in this area so you can try swapping over the thinner steel cover from your 98-02 F-Body T56 and maybe even using some low-profile allen button bolts to help with clearance. Like I said above, I did not have any tunnel fitment issues with the only change being the transmission.

The shifter position for the Magnum-F is in a better position (just like the T56 from a 98-02 F-Body) for an LS/LT swap into a first gen Camaro when compared to the original Magnum.

Does the Magnum F use a different speed sensor than the regular Magnum? The regular Magnum uses a Ford sensor, wondering if the "F" uses a GM one that matches the pulse output count as a regular GM T56.
Thanks

EDIT: That would require a different target wheel on the output shaft too wouldn't it?

The Magnum F style is supposed to be a duplicate offering for the '99-02 style T56. The main difference is the 31 spline yoke needed. I like this transmission better as the 4 bolt shifter offerings are much better than the standard Magnum T56 6 bolt style shifter. The F style comes with a pretty nice billet shifter... but most opt to install an MGW shifter etc instead.
