Has anyone ever swapped a 5speed tranny for a 6speed SVT. My zx3 synchros are about gone and was quoted about over $600 bucks to fix it and my car has 90k miles on it. I found an SVT tranny in a junkyard with 20K miles on it for $300. What else needs to be done to convert. Thanks.

you will need a flywheel from a svt focus or a aftermarket one ( the after market one is recommended because the svt is heaver than the zetec one) shift linkage and I beileve the shifter too. I would use the search button to find anything else this is just the stuff off the top of my head that I can remeber.

But one ?'s why would you want the SVT's transmission its geared taller than the MTX ours is better for racing and the svts's is better for auto crossing?
