idk i would love to have an lsd but for the price i could sell my tans and more then likely get a five speed, upgraded clutch and an lsd for the same price as just putting one in my tans.

hmm really hard to say which would be best for me. the 6 speed 1st gear tops 40mph and 2nd tops 70. same as the automatic. so for a stock zetec it probably wouldnt be any quicker lol.

The Getrag doesn't help with fuel economy at all. 6th gear is very similar to 5th in the MTX75

going the other way

Well, I want to go the other way from most people. I don't want faster acceleration, I want better MPG. I've always felt like the car needed one gear higher, an actual overdrive. I don't know how to get that other than buy a 6-speed, then buy new gears to have the gear ratio I want. I really think this car could get 40mpg on the highway.
Alas, the 'great minds in charge' want this car to be fully loaded with luggage and four people and still accelerate decently. I drive 99.5% of the time by myself.
Oh well, 'they' are in charge of our lives!

Ive got my six speed tranny sitting in my garage waiting for the day when i feel like doing this swap! I cant wait.... the stuff i have done to my car + six speed should be awesome! Im just saving up for the rest of the parts and a new clutch and flywheel for it and it will go in.
