Lentech or 5speedswap

Hey everyone. I have just been thinking. would it cost the more todo the 5speedswap or todo the lentech.
i know the lentech would be a easier bolt up. but cost matters.

I think it would be cheaper to find a wrecked Focus for cheap and do the whole swap than spend a boat load on the Lentech. Of course if you only want to get their valve body which I believe is about 400 (not much more than OEM replacement). If I boost my ATX I will definitely be getting their VB.

But the work of doing the swap is pretty laborious. I have lots of links on it if you like.

Good start (in case you even needed it, lol) http://www.modifiedfocus.com/autotomanual.htm

my biggest thing is i am getting tired of not being able to choose my gear. i want to run it on track. but i am sure its hard todo with a atx. if i can accomplish this without having to get a manual i will do so lol but i dont know how i could do it.

I saw lentech has a manual shift thing but dont know of anyone who has used it or how it would work. since my D20 only has P,R,N,D,L.

and thanks for that link. just wish they had more info on the Dura motor.

welp just got of the phone with lentech and my only hope is to swap to a 5speed. They told me that ford racing has back out on the newer focus (08-10) and the tranny is diff. then the previous models. So no valve body or new tranny for my car.
