I'm putting a manual trans in to replace my smoked automatic. Does anyone know if one in particular is better? As in do the probe's/626 have a different gear ratio that might be beneficial? Or since (i'm guessing) the 626 is heavier, maybe the trans is a bit stronger? Any particular year(s) I should order internals for if I just rebuild my 93 mtx?

probe gearbox has a different final drive ratio which yeilds slightly close gear ratios.

so more rpm when cruising.. but better acceleration.


thats the only difference

daevilone is correct.

I would not use a Probe gearbox though if you have a ZE. It's the same gearbox as the MX-3. IMO the gears are just too short.
