SVT swap?
i have a 02 zx5 i have been wanting to SVT swap it for the 6speed and more power... the ? is "is it worth it?'' how should i go about it have a donor car or just swap the head and trans?[hatchet][whip]

Whether or not it is worth it is a debatable question. If you have access to a cheap svt engine and trans, then maybe it is, but otherwise I would say that investing in a turbo, or jrsc would be a much better idea. If you get lucky, you can get a jrsc pretty cheap, and you will end up with more power.

Also, the Getrag 6speed isnt the greatest of transmissions, the mtx75 is much better for daily driving

I might be able to help you out with that:
