I'm going to move this to Engine and Transmission Swaps.
From what I understand, the later model transmissions will work. The bellhousing is the difference between Zetec and Duratec transmissions. I would make measurements across the bolts using a fabric measuring tape as well as note the number of bolts. That should keep you from getting the wrong transmission. In 04, the transmission was beefed up to handle the extra power from what I understand, and that was applied to all later transmissions.
Best wishes, I hope it works out for you both.

Not beefed up just received a lower final drive 3.41, in no way is it stronger.
