That Getrag 6-spd is designed for the svt= no low grunt, but top end power as you need the 6 speed. Put the cash into the motor.

BigRed03 its actually like 200-500 rpm higher at 75mph in 6th than 5th.

plus, the getrag isn't repairable like the mtx (sycros, gears, etc). Technically it is, but a replacement trans is cheaper lol

Focus112 nope, 6th will rev just as high as 5th on the MTX-75 on the highway, if not higher. Kind of annoying

FocusOnMeNow Really? No fuel saving? I would have thought for sure.

BigRed03 ^that.

but dont. not worth it. 6th isnt an overdrive like 5th in the mtx. 6th is slightly shorter gearing than 5th.
