gnarly screw up

So i was out racing my car on Friday night. Like all racers do on occasion i missed a gear. But unfortunately for me thus one was brutal and resulted in a hole in the side odd my transmission. Because it is an svt i feel like i should replace it with another getrag transmission or see if this one can be repaired. I'm just curious what other local focus guys opinions are about it? I was also curious to see if anyone knew whether a normal mtx 75 manual transmission would mount up to the svt motor I've been considering going that route.

have you looked in the tech discussions areas on here? you might be able to get some more direct help on what's needed for the swap in the transmission area. i believe the mtx75 will work, but i don't remember what's involved in doing that.
