Has anyone swapped the SVT six speed tranny into a regular zx5 or zx3??? Would it help performace?? My friend has a SVT and the tranny seems to be more stable and smoother.... he has the Steeda short throw on his, but i also have the Steeda on mine wich is only a ZX5..... his just seems so much smoother. Any advice, ideas, Opionions would help!!!

thanks

IMO I dont you would want to do this the getreg has had some problems and i've heard people say on here before that the mtx-75 was a better transmission.

save the money and mod the MTX, it will be just as good in the long run

well you might consider modding your motor first, after your making enough power, you couls go w/ LSD, light weight flywheel, gear set, clutch

6spd would slow u down in the 1/4 mile fyi better for driving everyday and track racing though but not for 1/4 mile

not worth the cash just work the one u have like mofo said

go with mofo and euro's advise!!! your tranny is fine stock until you start to make big #'s on the motor, then its time to upgrade it

i agree with euro and mofo. the mtx-75 is very good, once the power is there, then mess with better cluthches and shit,,the short throw will fell better when you do these.

If i recall correctly i believe the bellhousings on the tranny's are different.

But everyone's advice is good mod the engine and trans.
