just googled it and found an answer for the bellhousings, but i cant find anything about the input and output shafts being different, if they're the same then i could just swap bellhousings and shifter linkages or is there something else i'm over looking?

Well this I know lol... Focus axles will fit (as will the opposite), as far as bolt pattern I'm not sure, but also the starter location is different.

starter location wouldnt matter if i'm using the contour bellhousing, i got a set of focus axles laying around too lol but i didnt think they'd fit in a contour...so pretty much then i could actually just swap bellhousings and shifter linkages and run the focus axles with a focus clutch disc and not have to worry about the shafts being different at that point. i'm used to mustangs and rwd cars where pretty much if the bellhousing fits then the tranny will bolt up (to an extent) lol

the internals are the same but the case and bellhousing are different- in theory you could buy a focus trans and transfer all the goodies inside over to his case if its not out of spec but its alot easier said than done. when i ripped my spider gears out of my first tranny i pulled the tranny apart and it wouldnt go back together right but we threw it in the scrap pile anyway

You have a measuring tape, use it. The biggest problem you might run into is that the number of splines might be different if the length is right. In that case you'll end up having to use a friction disc for a Focus under a Contour pressure plate.

thats kinda what i was thinking but i was hoping someone would already know without me having to pull the tranny out of the contour yet, i have other stuff going on in my garage (only 1 bay free cuz the other one has a project focus in it) so if the tranny is out of the contour, then everything is on hold until i put one back in it.

Let us know how it goes, because I'm sure more people would be interested in the reverse of what you're doing.
