I believe they made a change to the shift towers and linkages on the tops of the transmissions from your year to the 03. Take a look at yours, and then the new trans and see if there is a difference. I am not sure if you can just swap the towers over or not. I have one of both in my garage, I suppose I should go check myself.

Did the one you picked up come out of another Ztec Focus, or did it come off a Duratech?
If from another Ztec it should bolt up, but like jet said the towers may be differant. However if it came out of a Duratech it will not bolt up.

Check what? I just told ya if its out of a Duratech it will not bolt up to the engine. The tranny is the same but the bell housings are differant.

ok thats good to no about the towerrs thanks alot. so i talked to the guy who has the trans and he told me that the car use to have a supercharger and then got a turbo so im kinda woried that it might have gotten beat on. also should i put in a Ford Racing 4.06 Final Gear Ratio Ring & Pinion? would it be worth it to just do that also. also what would that do for me. thanks
