Ive found a couple swap guides but they all use the MTX-75 tranny. Will the MTX-75 bolt right up to a spi? or would I have to use the IB5?

Why not just dump the SPI while you're at it and go Zetec? There was a engine and tranny combo in the buy sell trade section for $400.

Sure. You'll have to change over the ECU and wiring, since your car is pre-2001, but it is worth it to not have to worry about the valve seats dropping. If you're feeling particularly saucy, you could swap in an SVT motor and six speed.

How handy are you with a wrench? Do you have buddies that know how to work on these?
