Anyone done a MTX-75 in their SVT? Now that I have more power in my car I think the better drag race gear ratios would benefit me greatly.

Only thing I have heard negative about them is the 3rd gear synchros. Where can you get a MTX-75 built with all new internals?

Heres my tenative list:
MTX-75 (built preferrably_
MTX-75 short shifter and linkages
fidanza flywheel
Clutchmasters FX400 clutch
Quaife
Axles

havent seen a conversion yet... seems like a big job, why not just see if getrag makes a smaller ratio 1st and 2nd? then youd still have a six speed and all the linkage. i also feel that 1and 2 are really long gears and should have been shorter but i think they were looking at speed and cruising not drag racing the svt.

Good luck getting the ECU to understand the swap. I spoke with V6FOCUS one time about doing this swap and he said getting the tach and speedo to work would be a huuuuuge PITA.
