MTX 75 vs MTX

Will the MTX bolt up to a Ztec in place of the MTX 75 ?

Its the same thing. Looks confusing however because MTX stands for manual transaxle and most people use it that way, though ford also designates that transaxle as "MTX version 75" (it may not be version per-se but I said that to make more sense of it.)

Maybe I need to clarify my question, I have a 6 spd Focus SVT, Can I swap it to a 5 spd from a regular focus ?? Reason is, The 6 spd has a 1.45 3rd gear and the 5 spd has a 1.29 3rd gear. Thanks !!!

I just swapped mine from a 5spd to a 6sp. My friend arron did most of it but I watched and from what it looked like, it wasnt that difficult. I have 5spd parts if your looking. and it is possible to go from 6spd to 5. Make sure you get the 5spd axle mount and 5spd lower tranny mount. These were different, and we found out when we ran into the issue lol. get 5spd axles, 5spd clutch, 5 spd shift base and shifter
