Svt

ok well im kinda new at this but im trying to learn as much as i can i have already learned alot about the svt which is what i want but i want to know if i can take the trans off of the svt and swap it with another zetec engine. im more into drag racing than rally which is why i want to swap it out. and is it suggested or not. and another thing what are the differences between clutches like limited slip and all that or would just swapping the trand be ok

I'm confused, you want to buy an SVT, then swap a Zetec engine in, or Buy an SVT and swap in a Zetec tranny?

The regular zetec can be made to have more power and torque than the SVT for under $2000.
