the SVTf uses a 6spd Getrag transmission which is of superior build quality to the MTX-75 (5spd used on normal Foci).

i heard that the Getrag is very close geared and that some people prefer the MTX-75, but you'd have to drive a focus with one and see for yourself.

IMHO, stick with what you've got. If Ford's SVT engineers put it in there, its good stuff.

and its ok, everyones a newbie sometimes. but the unasked question is never answered.
