Cougar ---> Focus tranny parts

Anyone know if the link cables for a cougar with a v6 duratec will fit a zetec? I'm not sure what tranny the cougar uses but it looks identical to the mtx75. I know the link ends wont fit...just the actual linkage cables. Rather pull them at the scarp yard for a few $ than pay ford. Thanks

the cougar does have the mtx75, but i'm sure the brilliant people at ford didn't make the parts interchangable. i don't know for sure, but i doubt they'd work

that's good

y'know, it's kinda funny that I just saw the reference to a Cougar in here, because earlier today I was thinking about if a Cougar's V6 would fit in my car... lol

^^ i be him...

and i need to get new cable ends for my new shift cables....

i got Zetec cables... but the end links aren't the same.

i'm using a contour trans tho, not a cougar one.

if you've got pics of what the ends look like that would be sick!

and if you wanna do this swap, be ready to make custom mounts and do some custom wiring and line running in the engine bay.

if u want to do the swap, it'd be worth getting the escape 3.0L instead of the cougar/contour 2.5L. it is a direct bolt in for a cougar, so if u do the cougar/contour swap, then it's a direct bolt in a focus too. always nice to have an extra .5L when there's no extra work involved.
