What is the best transmission to a Turbo focus?

Hi people!

I have a turbo focus 2.0 zetec with a mtx-75 transmission.

What is the best transmission to a focus turbo with 400 whp?

Can the mtx 75 afford this power ?

Thanks,

Bruno

you will need an LSD and clutch and flywheel.

My flywheel is stock....And my clutch is made by ceramic.

I'm thinking in buying a Quaife....

The aluminiun flywheel helps to not break the transmission?

That would do it.
It really depends on what your goal is.
Some people swap the Lentech Auto Trans to help their monster focus get better times at a drag strip. But, as far as street focus with 400whp, you are better off with what you have now but with, as the other guys stated, an LSD (quaife or torsen) and a beefed up clutch probably a stage 3 or 4. Stay away from a light weight flywheel when you are pushing 350 to 400whp, it just beats its purpose.
