I'm going to say that it could be possible, although the gearboxes aren't laid out at all similar internally for the flywheel to be the same at least in respect to the engine side, although short of pulling the transmission to check the actual part numbers and verifying the part numbers and spline count it's just a bit suspect to assume that they are correct.

The MTX-75 uses a Dual Mass Flywheel, but so too does the DCT. Since they did not post the part number they said was from the service manual I find it a little bit suspect that it would be the same part used in varying torque requirements. What would have infinite life for the 160 hp/148 lb-ft of torque of the stock 2.0 L Duratec i4 would be stressed much more at 252 hp/270 lb-ft of torque.

It would however make transmission swaps a whole lot easier that way for the shade tree guys wanting the 6MT or a 5MT downgrade.

Most Ford parts of a particular type have the same base code, but that doesn't make them the same exact part.
