ATX to Getrag... Anybody got a parts list?

So I'll be honest and I'm a mechanical noob. I know that you can swap the mtx-75 into an ATX, and you can swap the Getrag instead of the MTX-75, however, can you swap a Getrag into an ATX?

Please let me know the answer, and what parts are required... I'm looking to buy a SVT Tranny because I really want to do a manual swap....

Thanks!
Kevin

I'm sure it can be done, but if you're not doing it yourself it will get expensive. The transmission itself will be hard to find.

The 5 speed is a better tranny in my opinion...The MTX75 is tough...The best ( and cheapest) way to go would be to get EVERYTHING from a salvage yard. Tranny, pedal box, slave cylinder, lines for it. shifter, linkage...

The MTX75 would be great compared to the Getrag6. Its going to be easier to find the parts, cheaper to buy the parts, and I'm sure Viney's right about it being tougher.

I pulled this from illinipo's ATX-MTX75 thread. The part list would pretty much be the same, you would just need to get them from the svt.


Transmission
transmission, including:
-vehicle speed sensor and pigtail
-reverse sensor and pigtail
-shifter cable bracket
-rear mount bracket
-tripod of the upper mount
-gear selector

Clutch/Flywheel
flywheel
clutch pressure plate and disc
slave cylinder and throwout bearing (comes as one piece)
flywheel bolts (get new ones)
pressure plate bolts
clutch alignment tool

Shifter, etc
shifter and base and bracket from same era as trans i.e. 2000-2002.5
shift cables from same era as trans i.e. 2000-2002.5
shifter boot
shift knob
applicable nuts and bolts

Fluid and Pedals
brake/clutch fluid reservoir from a manual transmission car
the fluid lines coming off the reservoir
clutch master cylinder
the fluid line that goes from the clutch master cylinder to the slave cylinder
clips that hold the lines into the master and slave cylinders
brake and clutch pedal box and pedal covers
clutch position sensor (there is a way to wire it without this thing)
brake fluid (it would be good to have 2 liters ready) I prefer ATE Super Blue or Typ200, or if you are cheap Valvoline SynPower
3 quarts of Motorcraft XT-M5-QS fluid

cool... the reason i ask right now is because a guy in the BST forums is selling a Getrag for like $700....

he says that's he has everything for the swap at that price (I'm a little Leary though) but I should really be getting the MTX 75....

Sweet. Kevin
