yeah dont waste your time or money on converting your atx spi to a mtx... with all of the time and money spent on that might as well go SVT if you know what i mean? My dream is to one day own a SVT sedan
I'll rock this SPI till the wheels fall off!!!

the spi uses a ib5 tranny, its a ok tranny, but its really a pain to do a swap, i was considering this as well, and looking into costs and such, figured it be 1500-2k in parts and id do all the labor and itd take prolly a few weekends to do, so i just got a 07 focus for a damn good deal and the dura is pretty nice mated withthe mtx75
