The only way you could convert to a 6 speed would be to swap the engine too. :) The 2 zetecs are different and the bolting of the tranny won't align with any other except the SVT.

If youre into drag racing, the regular 5 speed is the quicker tranny. The 6 speed's first two gears are loonnggggggg lol.

Youll see that the SVT's arent that quick before the 1/8th mile, but they shine beyond that.

Just something to keep in mind
