MT75 Gearbox

Postby Nourish » Thu Dec 15, 2016 10:55 am

I have a Sierra type9 box thinking I was going to use a 2.0ltr Zetec but I've nbow bought an ST170 engine, Is this box strong enough?
Looking at alternatives - a quirrk of my personality is I won't buy anything Japanese so a Mazda box is out of the question.
Now I've seen mentioned the the MT75 gearbox - a look on Ebay and theres the fixed bellhousing Transit box and the Sierra type that also comes in the XR4i form.
Other than that I know very little else. Who can enlighten me?
Cheers
Martin

Hi nourish the type 9 very good gearbox,its nice and small,there are many differant type 9 gearboxes some stronger than others,diesel car ones and xr4i ones probably strongest,(xr4i used type 9 not mt75),look up on ford forams to find part numbers for strongest boxes,type 9 good for about 200-250 bhp,even quaife say there type 9 gearbox good for 250bhp,the mt75 does fit,same bolt pattern as type 9,mt75 you would want is from sierra 20L twin cam or granada twin cam cars diesel and petrol,the mt 75 is strong,ive seen cosworths with 500bhp abuse crap out of these and they take it,on plus side they are cheap,the gear stick is on separate steel cradle so can be chopped up to move gearstick where you like,they have a nice light shift(had t5 gearbox in my cosworth before and like tractor gearchange),also mt75 bit more chunky in height and width,
If you were going for the st170 swap i would think type 9 would be best bet,as been done loads before,but if in future you fancy some big bhp maybe mt75 worth while,hope this helps
