When I done my swap I got the whole front half of the car. All the wiring under the dash was changed, all the wiring under the hood was different for the vct and the intake manifold runner controller. The ecu is different. The axles I believe. I'm sure I'm forgetting some but I'm at work and tired

I was looking into swapping a 6 speed inplace of an auto. Does anyone have a list of parts for this? It is a 00 zx3 with an auto trans. I will be keeping the Zetec motor in the car.

The 5 speed MTX75 is a better choice for the Zetec. It is better suited to the power curve of the non SVT Zetec.

Trans
axles
linkage
shifter
MTX master cylinder
Clutch master cylinder
Master cylinder to throwout bearing fluid line
MTX pedal assy
MTX under hood wire harness
Flywheel
Clutch
MTX ECU

If you don't change the dash harness you will have to convert to push button start.

Now im confused on the shifter and shift base I was under the impression they were the same? Im running an SVT shift base on my mtx75 without any modifications ofcourse no reverse lock out. I would think the crappy plastic shift base would work with an svt trans.

Not argueing Im just curious thats all. Even though I like the metal shift base better. Broke 3 of the plastic ones in this cars ten years.
