asides from the shift linkage and the wiring what else would be needed for the swap I just read something that it has a lower mounting point. just an idea I have been wondering about or is it better to just build the mtx75

Better to build the MTX75. Your Duratec is designed to work with it, and the MTX75s are pretty tough little gearboxes to begin with.

This subject has been done to death too; the fabrication work involved would make it less expensive to sell your car and buy an SVT.

if you have a duratec...its not worth it

if you have a zetec. so it. the mtx75 sucks sooooooooooooooooooooo bad compared to a properly built. even both being built. its not even close my friend

there is NO fabrication work on the zetec. none at all!

I thought the bell housings (or something like that) were different on the duratecs MTX75 than the zetecs MTX 75? And since he has an 05, he def has a duratec.
