Talking Woo Hoo wife killed the pos spi time for zetec swap!

Well bought the car with 98,000 had it two years has 117,000 now and she blew it up hahaha i knew it was coming sooner or later.

So i have done some research on here and im going to list the things i found on here that i need to get for the swap tell me if im missing anything. BTW its and an 01 auto spi and im going to an auto zetec.

zetec motor mounts both passenger sides
zetec ac lines coming from compressor
zetec ecu
zetec engine bay harness from fuse box to fuel pump
zetec power steering high pressure line
zetec fuel line from body to fuel rail
zetec air box an tube
zetec throttle cable ( if i dont just mod my spi one)
zetec ac compressor?
zetec coolant hose from resevoir to thermostat

from what i read i have to get a motor and harness and ecu from an 00 or 01 zetec to go into my 01 spi and i also read the auto trans is the same and i can just use the one i have from my spi.

SO if i missed anything please list it i need to make a junkyard run, we have a couple u pull its so hope i can find one with it all. thanks everyone. if i dont get to cought up in it ill try and remember to take pix anpost em.

you will also need a body wire harness as the engine bay to body harness connectors are different. plan about 100-150 to have a mobile locksmith program the keys.you will also need a the dohc flex pipe. i would recommend you get new motor mounts as on of mine broke right after the swap.

00-01 had the same plugs, so he will be fine. The change wasn't until 02, and that only affected the A/C system.

Also, you cannot use the auto trans from the SPI, it is the same model trans, but the internal electrical stuff is different, and the Zetec PCM will not control it correctly. I do at least 2 of these swaps per week, and I always pull the engine and trans together from the same donor car, so everything matches up.

Don't need them, just pull the PATS chip from the donor keys and replace them in his car's keys. That is how I did my swap.

I thought you could use the auto tranny as well. I've never done a swap with the auto so IDK.
