sleepyboy Don't forget the crank position sensor bracket either, that definitely needs to be swapped over.

I am aware that I need to swap EVERYTHING. From the 01 zx3, I will have the engine and tranny, dash all the wiring, etc left over because I will have pulled that out. So the 00 zx3 is the one with the overheated engine and my idea was to install the engine left over from my 01 zx3 with the manual tranny into the 00 zx3 with the auto tranny. Now do I have to completly swap the dashes and all the wiring or can I just drop in the engine and the clutch pedal and shifter assemblies? Thanks again for you alls time.
Unless you want a push button start you will need the dash harness. Otherwise you will not have a clutch position switch, and by removing the ATX you will rmove the nuetral safety switch.

If you forget to do that you won' get any spark and will have to pull the tranny to swap it out. I know cause it happened to me before.
He wants to go from 01 Zetec to SVT. EVERYTHING needs to be swapped.

Therefore I will have all the parts that I need to put into the other focus that I acquired. I was really just wondering if I needed to pull the dash to change all the wiring and all that or could I just install the engine and tranny, clutch pedal, ecu? BTW, thanks for y'alls responses and your time.
Because your dealing with a pre 02 yes all the wiring needs to be swapped.

I've done an 01 Zetec to 03 SVT swap. Without changing the interior harness the subwoofer power was lighting the left and center brake lights. lol

The swap is basically the same You will need all the SVT specific parts. Header, exhaust, passenger side engine mount, power steering line, axles, ect...
