Im having a hard time getting into first gear and sometimes 3rd,i get a crunching noise and I've done some research and think it might be the synchro. How much (estimate) would it cost to get it fixed??

Is this true? Getrag was not made to be rebuilt?

has anyone every confirmed whether the Mini Coop S getrag (with a bell housing swap), and potentially the cailber srt getrag, would work inplace of ours? It'd open the door to more options for finding a tranny....

All transmissions are meant to be rebuilt. Getrag was bought and is now out of Michigan. I just put my tranny in to be overhauled at a local shop in Florida. The MTX75 6 speed is SVT specific. We are contacting drivetrain.com for bearings and especially syncros on Monday or Tuesday. I have 202K on my 02 and it looks like new inside except for the 3rd gear syncro has chips in it. Ford doesn't have parts for the tranny but other places do. I wouldn't advise you to use a franchised tranny shop. Try and find a good shop with a long history of doing good work.

the getrag is the mt285, not the mtx 75.
