Escort Zetec MTX-75 to Focus Zetec

My donor focus for a ATX-MTX swap fell through. Can I use a escort Zetec MTX-75 in the focus?
How about flywheel, starter and shifter? I'm guessing the shifter is different.
I know I'll have to get a focus pedal, master cyl, wiring harness, trans mounts.
Thanks

The zx2 model? It uses an IB5 tranny, not a mtx75.

ZX2 uses the Mazda G5M transaxle.
Either was it won't really work on a Focus. The MTX-75 is a stronger box anyway.

Check with ACT if the part number is the same then yes, if not then it is different.

Thanks, I never can remember the tranny model for the zx2.

The Cougar/Contour zetec will work, the zx2 basically think of it as a completely different car for clutches.
