Uberschprung Are these instructions imply-able to a SPI ATX to Zetec MTX swap?

Yes, yes you do just clip it on. The shift boot has a plastic ring in it much like the boot for your handbrake. It's exactly the same console

All I can think of right now is changing the Crankshaft position sensor housing (I didn't see that on the original instructions so I just changed the sensor and ended up having to disassemble the entire car again to change it) and the carrier bearing, which is bolted on to the back of the engine block. That's all I can think of right off the top of my head.

Theta SIgma Did anyone have trouble with DTC codes after the swap? I cannot get rid of P0770 Shift Solenoid E. Had tunes from Tom and contacted SCT with no avail. Can anyone think of an alternative way to shut it off?

Theta SIgma For any future viewers who struggle to find the pigtail for the reverse sensor switch, the pigtail is EXACTLY the same as the pigtail that plugs into the back of the speakers and into the back of the horn on a 1st gen Foci (may be same as future generations, but I can confirm for the 1st gen)
