you're going to use an SVT clutch and SVT flywheel...it bolts right to the zetec crank...since they are essentially the same as svt

yea, i know they are the same and would bolt right up. just wasn't sure witch one u would have to use. so just wondering but if i was to say want to put a five speed into the svt i would then be able to use just a regular zetec clutch and fly wheel corect?

yes...you use the clutch and flywheel for the model tranny you're using.

personally i wouldn't go to the 5spd again. that 6spd is awesome. makes driving awesome.

yea, i will give u that the six speed is awsome, but it does have some down falls to it. its very pricey to get parts for compared to the five speed. first gear is kinda tall as well. and its heavy! the light weight fly wheel is still like 15 pounds or something. but idk ive alway thought it would be kinda cool to see what an svt could do with a five speed in the quarter compared to the six speed. i dought that i will ever do it, but would be kinda cool.

parts are a tad bit more expensive.

however i think its a stronger tranny.

i thought the LFW from FS was like 12 or something, thats damn light...makes a huge difference with UDPs as well.

it might be 12, but the lwf for the five speed is onyl i wanna say 8 pounds or so. i know its not much of a difference but its still a difference. but yea, i'm deffinatly not giving up my six speed any time soon, if ever. even more so since i just ordered a st170 rear bumper and front end for it! so i'm now broke.
