Angry No 5-speed swap Guide yet?

Nobody has a guide to it yet I know it can be done cheap if you have a donor car... and some skill... but i want to know the little things...

Harness has to be spliced?
Sensors plug in?
Stuff like that.

Thanks

EVNLDR

That is an EXTREMELY difficult thing to do, it's not worth it. Trust me, I looked into this for a couple years a while back. It's just not worth it.

I heard it can be done if you have the parts you need (A junkyard car for parts)
I was told its all plug-n-play but some bolts are not the same... I heard it’s a 900$ labor job a so I guess 12 hour job… I heard this from somebody on here that had it done for 900$ labor... He had a donor car to. I’m sure more than one person had it done... Come on speak up here.

man, if you want a manual that bad, just trade your focus in for one with a manual. it'll save you the hassle and prolly won't cost all that much more.
