Trans Swap Question

Well its come to the point where having an automatic has finally become boring and I plan on doing a swap from a same year 2001 zx3 this of course being a manual. About how much though is it going to cost to purchase all of the parts necessary to do said swap? Sorry if there's already a thread on this, which there probably is -_-

I cannot say for certain, because I haven't done a swap on the Focus, but I put about $1200 into a auto-manual trans swap that I did on my Trans Am (mid 80s). Trans prices seem to be comparable, but how much you spend on the clutch setup in the car will probably determine a large portion of the cost. That price included everything I needed (started with an $800 trans, pedals, used clutch, hydraulics, flywheel, etc). Then I replaced the flywheel, and clutch, and put new hydraulics in it. That doesn't cover the cost of what I put into the trans before I used it (new syncros, and replaced the 3-4 engagement gear).

I just did a swap on my 01 zetec sedan and from the local pick and pull it and no new parts it cost me around 300 buck. I did all the work as well and used the junkyard clutch and flywheel so take that into concideration.
