Do what I'm doing.

I grabbed a good MTX-75 from a junkyard for $100, and I'm dropping an LSD into it myself. All in all, I'll have a SPEC clutch, a Fidanza flywheel, and a Torsen LSD for a little over $1000.

Update the shift forks and tower while you're at it. I'm doing the same thing this winter with a Contour SVT trans with a blown diff. I have a Quaife ready for it as well. There is a decent how-to on CEG, complete with part numbers.

hmmm, I'll have to check out this said howto. I do have a quaife going in. Dont know how much fancier I am going than that because I am expecting to be pulling it and redoing it shortly after the initial install

[I cant drive stick, I'm expecting to burn through the existing clutch rather quickly].

but ya, if you want to do a mod meet, I'd love to lend a hand. I've participated in enough pulls to be somewhat helpful.

Terry, if you want me to teach you how to drive stick let me know... you wont burn thru a clutch but you certainly dont want to learn how to drive on a stage 3 or anything like that.

I think it took me about 2 days to pick it up really well.

I still have some random parts laying around but no tranny parts at all... some engine parts and exhaust parts yes.

hence why the stock clutch is going in first for a while.

Woot, my torsen diff should be here wed's or thursday, tranny i just need to go pick up, and im in the process of talking to SVTCuervo about getting the spec 3+ clutch...

Im just having a shop do it for around 450 - 600 because of the lack of a lift and time.


As for the Upgraded shifting forks, where can those be found anyone ?
