I've got an automatic tranny right now and i wanna change it to a stick shift. How should I go about doing that. I looked on Focus-Power.com and they're selling an MTX tranny, so would i just have to buy that and take it to a shop?
Ummm.. unless I don't know of such an upgrade I don't think you can get any hp from a tranny but maybe I am wrong. ( You will FEEL a difference though as far as how much faster your car is) If you are going to Turbo I would build up the tranny frist cuz the stock one will be left out in the middle of the road after you take off if you have a good amount of boost.
The turbo will eat your stock ATX up fast. If you are going FI or just 135 ft/lbs of torque...a new tranny is somewhere in your future. The hp ATX's out there from PA or Lentech will handle plenty of whp. Do the tranny first, then you can do whatever you want.
