I think you're out of luck. The only other alternative is the SVT 6-speed Getrag, but if you can't get a MTX-75 you sure won't find a Getrag.

Try this: http://car-part.com/
I'd search on California to minimize shipping, but you may need some luck too!

I dunno what Lentech charges, just keep in mind this is no small feat and that an MTX swap will require lots more parts than just the tranny, and some pretty mechanically intensive labor and wiring.

Good luck on it though. =)

Not to mention that it won't even work with a Duratec.
