SVT Focus 6-speed
#718329 - 09/21/04 09:38 AM

Would an SVT Focus 6-speed fit in an SVT Contour? Would it survive if it did fit? Has anyone attempted this swap yet?

Not, the Zetec and Duratec have different bellhousing patterns.

On top of the fact that it's a weaker tranny than the MTX-75.

No it's not!

It's shorter because the Zetec it's attached to has a small powerband. It has to keep the engine on a high boil to achieve performance.


The broader the powerband the less reliant the engine is on the gear spacing.

then how come the msp makes the same power and has the same G15M as the zx2 and can run .2-3 ahead of a svtF?

a zx2 will run even or pull on a svtF in 1st and 2nd gears the svt wont start to catch up till about 80mph.trust me I know a guy with a SVTF motor in his zx2 with the G15M tranny.

and i wouldnt call a 4.44:1 1st gear short
