How much torque can a stock 5 sp MTX handle? Does anyone offer upgrade internals for rebuild, and are they needed for what torque level?

The all stock MTX-75 can easily take 350 pound foot of TQ , add a LSD and can go above 500 pound foot of TQ

You will spend 10K+ at the end of the day setting up your car properly. Ask me how I know.

Motor alone will be 3500+, add turbo kit, drivetrain, etc. There is more that just the motor that needs upgrades after injecting 400hp into a Focus.

lol, i just realized the OP was from Feb of... last year.
