I think he's asking if you plan on switching out the MTX-75 for the 2.5 Mazda3/Fusion 6 speed transmission if it ends up being something that doesn't require a lot of fabrication.

subbed, what'd you guys have to do to get an mtx75 on that D25. A couple years ago a few people tried an mtx75 swap on the mzr 23. speed3 6-speed ended up being a more cost effective swap. I know the mtx75 has much more gearing and diff options.
