Zetec swap question

Hi guys I have a 2000 focus sohc with a 5 speed, will a zetec motor bolt up to my transmission or will I need to get a new manual transmission too? I'm hoping that my 5 speed will work if I go ahead with this swap because I want to save as much money on putting a better motor in since the car is currently still on loan and I would rather just keep my car then find a new one to buy. Also if someone could tell me what all I'm going to need so I can start pricing parts and saving up some money.

Yeah I tried searching for a while, but I'm on tapatalk on my phone so I can't find much. But I really hope I can make my 5 speed work.

You need a donor car- engine, trans, harness, and computers. The computers are synced to work together, so those must be taken from the donor car.

General Technical Chat is for technical discussions relating to general maintenance, electrical issues, engine trouble, and recalls.

We have a whole section on Engine and Transmission swap, and SPI to Zetec is a popular swap with lots of information and threads. Search that forum only so you won't get threads where we encourage people to swap engines.

Moved to Engine and Transmission swap.
