00 spi to 04 zetec

Hey I have had limited sucess on a spi to zetec swap. These forums have been a valuable resource thanks to all who contribute. I have a 2000 focus that dropped a valve seat , havent pulled it apart but its done. Found 04 zetec with 70k on for 500$ and as much as i could get going off the car using the parts lists people have posted on here. The car currently will start and idle properly, when it reaches near operating tempertature it tends to bog an die. once the car is shut off and restarted it will die unless maintained by the throttle. Also the throttle response isnt good when driving. Ive probably bit off more than I can chew but would like to make something of this project so its not a write off. any help would be great.

Not enough info. I have done the swap successfully and could now do it blind folded.

Need more details about what you did.

Did you swap the computer and wire harness?
Did you swap tranny?
Was your car auto or manual?
Was the doner car auto or manual?

Post as much info as to what you changed during the swap.

The throttle response may be due to: Auto and manual have different TPS sensors and they sit at different angles. I know when I put a Manual TPS on my Auto the throttle response was terrible, because the computer thought the throttle position was where it was not.

Thanks,
Joe

the computer is not out of the donor car since it was a zetec with mtx. The computer is out of another car that had a zetec atx. Since the harness for the engine was different from the 04 to 00 I decided to go where few venture lol and splice the 04 engine harness into the original harness using some wiring diagrams and a bunch of time. The tranny hasnt been swapped. It is automatic the donor car was a manual and has now been crushed. In hindsight i should have bought the donor car and fixed that one and left the zetec in it.
