Hey man i am sorry no. Now if u had the automatic trans they make a valve body that would let u burn out in 1-2 and 3rd . but no my friend that works with me at greenway ford in orlando. did a motor swap with his spi just becosue he had the ib5 trand and he wanted it beefer. becuse he has to swap the motor cuz they dont make a good trans with the spi motor now the automatic trans with the spi is the same as the zetech and the 2.3 but the 5 speed thats in the zetech is the mtx75. so i am sorry no theres nothing u can do to make that trans beefer.

Methinks its in the mid $300 range. maybe a bit one way or the other. They also have a torque converter if I'm not mistaken.
