That was a mistake not putting the Getrag in the 05-07 ST's IMO if they were trying to replicate the SVT.
you do know that the 6-speed getrag transmission is shorter overall than the 5-speed mtx right? meaning youll hit your peak rpm faster (and more times at that)
thats why I said that... that and people have been know to blow one up on occasion...
and the MTX-75 is readily availibly for aftermarket mods... its been in fords line up since the 90's. Torsen, certain aftermarket clutches and flywheels... just certain things that are already on the market for the MTX-75 that may be able to use with the new revision, that wont be usefull for the getrag
manufacturers charge more for something that they cant sell a lot of (specialty items), I rather see the MTX 75 flooding the market just to get prices down on those particular mods. That and it will be easier for replacement parts and service down the road if there is more than 5K cars the come out with it...
