I am not aware of any 7-speed transmissions.

Here is something close to what you are looking for: http://www.quaifeamerica.com/transmi...4x4/27G4x4.htm

The only two companies that I am aware of that offer a 7 speed transmission are Benz and chrysler. which of course in there top end cars. the chrysler offers it in their prototype
ME 4 12 and the benz has it in there sl ( i think ) And now BMW offers a 7 speed tranny with smg. So far they offer this on their M series M5 and soon M6

I should have clarified. I meant for use in a Focus, or intended for rallying.

if you are going to rally, and want to be in AWD group, get an AWD car to start with. Doing a conversion is NOT worth it, especially for a n00b to rally.

And before you purchase a car, etc...make sure you figured out all the costs, and have the $$ in hand to drop on whatever you need.

That being said, have fun finding a "cheap" tranny for this...ford doesnt sell them as far as i know, and i know of NO company that makes them...or you might see more AWD foci around

Start by rallying a FWD car anyway. Any rally car you start with, in fact the first few you start with, are just gonna get trashed anyway. Start with a cheap FWD beater and then spend your money when YOU aren't going to be the main hurdle for performance.

Oh, and to answer your question, an AWD rally Focus with sequential transmission would probably run you about $70K-$80K.
