wrc_fan Not really a lot to do for the MTX75, you could go searching for some quaife gear sets, or for the same costs you could have a pile of spare transmissions.

3rd gear syncro can be weak, I had one fail, but I place most of the blame on the ebay shifter the previous owner installed in the car.

1turbofocus One person claimes to have better sync. but a customer installed a set because of rally racing and they went out just as fast as the stock ones and were very costly

You can do a 4.06 gear set but adding the LSD and checking your sync. is about all you can do

Not sure where to put this, as there is no transmission sub forum, so please move this if it is better suited elsewhere.

I'm looking into getting a LSD and racing clutch (FSWerks stg 3), and was wondering if there are other options to beef up the MTX while I have it apart.
Looking for things such as a SS clutch line, heavy duty synchros, etc. Or any other weak point that the MTX may have in it. I know they're solid trannies, but I want to make it bulletproof.

New gearsets are probably out of my budget, but for the right price I would happily swap out for some optimized dog gears (sound is no issue to me), but I can't find anything for less than a couple grand.

Thanks in advance,
PowerFocer


P.S. I already have the CFM poly mount and Steeda STS.
