Powerworks ATX to manual swap?

I am going to be swapping my ATX to manual on my car since my trans is slipping, ive been reading on how to do it with a stock focus. I was wondering if there was more to it with the powerworks kit on it, if so what else do i have to get for the swap?

well you could read about how to do it on a not-so-stock focus

illinipo's MTX swap w/ Torsen thread (Zetec) (pics... 56kthxbye)

Otherwise I think there was something about a bracket that is different between atx/mtx PW's.

the passenger engine mount is the same... what you need is the mount for the bearing on the passenger side axle.

the clutch pedal has 2 sensors. The one that is pushed at the bottom is for the start inhibit circuit. you dont need it. The one on top is for cruise control and idle control. You dont need it, unless you want cruise to turn off when you push in the clutch.

ALL of the pics, every last one of them, have been re-posted later in the thread. It wont let me edit posts older than 3 months.

I just did it a few days ago so theyre on the last page still.
