Replacing the Getrag, need a source!

I was looking at maybe purchasing another SVT with a hole in the tranny and in need of a new clutch. For $3300 this is what I get:

"
Problems:
Needs a new transmission and clutch. The transmission needs to be replaced. There is a fist sized hole blown in the case. The Spec flywheel can be relined instead of buying another one for $700.
Small crack on the front bumper
Damage from accident on drivers side rear lower quarter panel.
Some small trim pieces need paint.
"

BUT.... I can't seem to find replacement getrags! I can't even find a price for an mtx-75! Anyone have a source for either? I would consider converting over to a mtx-75 and the appropriate upgraded clutch if it would be better or cheaper than a 6-speed. Or should I just strip the awesome parts from this car and part out what I don't need?

This could be a good deal, right? He is in the next town over, too.

Thanks for any help.

Nice! I had a hard time with any search engine I came across not having SVT as an option. Bookmarked!
