So, I can get my hands on a MTX75 box from a 2.0L Mondeo. What else do I need to do to swop out the IB5 box in the Fiesta.

Si???

New mounts and possibly drive shafts???

I am fitting one from a focus RS mk1 in my escort turbo (aswell as the focus RS engine) and just need to run custom drive shafts and mounts and modify the inner arch a little to get it to fit, my guess is if the MTX is fitted to mondy's with the duratec then that would be the clutch to use, looking at it the big ££££'s will be the shafts i have been quoted 300 to 500 for these. Jano at oddkidcreations as done a few on these on various fords so might be worth a call, i can't vouch for the work cos i aint seen it, but i know he uses drag race spec drive shafts not cut n shut.

to be honest unless you have big torque i would spend you money elsewhere, a lot of rs turbo lads are using the ib5 to quite big power levels at the moment (300 ish) but rebuild will no doubt be frequent.

and that is what im talking whole time, and no one trusts ...
i run more than 400hp with that gearbox, i abuse it night and day, and its like first day...

if you do not plan to hit more than 500hp, dont change it
but again, if you completely rebuild your engine, why not go to 600hp

LOL Josey - you missed this out -





Not sure if the mondeo ones are different but the ones I have dont need anything like that though

I thought I gave you a full list a while ago ? I still have most of what you need sat here as 90% of people who say they will do it dont unfortunately. Give me a PM
My parts are based on a new focus MTX75 but most should be relevant.

You did mention that you have the parts Si. I wont be able gto ship them to SA from the UK. Shipping will be a killer, A brake upgrade kit cost 160 GBP to ship, imagine gear box parts.

I tend to think so to Josey, Quaiffe diff and uprated diff bearings is probably the route I am going to take.
as i told you over email,
if you plan to stick around 400hp or less, no need to push with MTX idea, stick with IB5, quaiffe diff and uprated bearings.
will be good enough.
