Congrats on the swap! I don't really know why people with SVT's hate the tranny so much, it helps having a tall gear in winter with no traction control.

Actually the 5-speed is better for the quarter mile and overall cruising (geared higher than the Getrag). The Getrag has closer ratios for the race track to keep your engine near it's peak power output.
