I might be able to help you out with that:

ViperThreat 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
