what ecu would I have to use in order to run a svt motor and get the intake mani. to do what it's supposed to?
and how much do new svt motors go for?
and will it bolt up to my zetec axles, mounts ect....

If you are running a MTX 75 I would say the SVT ecu. If you are taking about an automatic trans, you may be on your own for that.

Then I would say the SVT computer.

have an idea on how much that would cost? stock engine, ecu? and can I use the already existent harness?

I think the svt has a different harness, but I dont know. You will have to get some input from the SVT guys. I havent messed with the svt motor, just the regular zetec.

if you could spend a little money on a chiltons repair manuel at the nearest
auto parts store car quest napa or checkers i would advise it would be very
easy to find that information in a repair manuel
whoops double click

im pretty sure the svt has a 2.3 or 2.0 L engine it could even be zetec check under the hood on the engine and
see if it says zetec or split port , if the engine is zetec then it 2.0 if the engine says split port then its
2.0 L or 2.3Lregardless its going to cost alot especially if you take it to a mechanic
2.0L2.3L and spi engines are both 16 valve double overhead camshaftsfour cylinder,in-line design,mounted transversly at the front of the vehiclewith the transmission on its lefthand end.

SVT is a Zetec engine... You can find them from $300 and up (accessories and harness inclusion will vary).
You will need the wiring, engine harness, gauge cluster, PCM, and several other things... Do a search on here... someone just recently put an SVT engine/tranny into a sedan.

To use the MTX trans on a SVT engine you have to use the MTX clutch and flywheel then the SVT ECU would not work because the SVT uses a Diff amount of pickups and frequency

not even close to a direct bolt in. You need lots of parts so it'll run stock.consider $2-4k depending on who and what you know

Why would you even want to stick with the 5-speed, the Getrag has a more usable powerband.
