no, you basically have to buy another tranny due to different bellhousings. And they aren't sold separately. Theres a whole lot more involved too. Wiring harness/ecu

Basicly, go buy a duratech powered focus. By time you buy all the parts you'll have spent close to 3k-4k

mtx-75 to getrag swap is pretty strait forward. almost a direct bolt on replacement. gotta change to a svt flywheel tho. gears are quite taller in the getrag. now if you're planning on doing an automatic ATX to getrag swap that could be interesting. there could be alot more to that swap than a manual to manual conversion. ive never looked into the auto to manual swaps much because i will never own an automatic again except for a strait up dragster. however i wouldnt worry with this swap unless you just happen to already have a getrag lying around and you bust your stock trans because parts are ALOT more expensive and hard to find for the getrag.

We have a forum for this very question- it's the Engine and Transmission Swap forum. I think you might need the shifter and cables, but I haven't seen pictures of the SVT shifter assembly, and there will be 2 different shifter assemblies because Ford changed things in 2002.5 on all Focis from what I understand.
