Duratec six speed?

So I've been searching the interweb for info on swapping a 6sp with my 5sp in my 2010 ses. Is it true that a Mazdaspeed 6 trans will swap in? Would I need custom half-shafts?

Also, I haven't found the gear ratios for my focus. I can only find them for the MS6.


They are:

3.538:1, 2.238:1, 1.535:1, 1.171:1, 1.085:1, 0.853:1
final drive 3.611:1


The overall goal is to get a double overdrive and hopefully drop the rpm from 3k to around 2k @ 75mph.

I know most 6spd have a similar final drive to a 5spd, but one can dream right?

Maybe the 6 speed out of a '10 and up Fusion, you can order one with a 2.5L / 6 speed in the base model. Been thinking about doing a swap to just that combo. As far as the Mazda trans, don't know.

Ok, lets try something else. Does anyone know where you can get a custom built trans for our cars? There has to be someone, with all those road race cars out there.

You could check out Quaife.

IMHO they have at least a different gearbox and a differential for the SVT/ST170
