What do you mean? What wires?

The harness? You have to swap the harness and computer from the Zetec also. Then everything is there and match the plugs up. I looked at another zetec to see where all the plugs went on the harness.

I did a very complete how to do the swap after I was done. Its on here somewhere.

BTW have you seen my car lateley? http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=280306

After thought

Was there the same number of wires or did you just match color wires?

KUEHN8898 to tell if it was bad i pushed down on mount while it was running and vibration stopped. but if you pull it out flip it over the edge will be pulled up away from it an flexes more than it should. new ones like 40 bucks at oriellys life time warrenty

J0EC00L If I could just get the power steering line above the header to be parallel with the valve cover it would look perfect



Ooohh baby, she's a runner! Next stop Lentech Street Terminator!

J0EC00L Hmm, motor mount eh. I'll look into that. I did get the motor mount for the swap from the junk yard.

Thanks for the info

Any way to tell if the mount is bad?

KUEHN8898 my car did that before the swap it was the passenger side motor mount. its liquid filled mount and all the liquid or oil whatever it is leaked out. took us forever to figure out that what it was

J0EC00L Motors in and runs good.

It does idle a little rough around I'm guessing 600-700 rpm but any thing over about 900 rpm it is smooth as silk.
Any ideas???

We are putting on a new IAC tomorrow and hopefully that helps.

We checked for vacuum leaks and found none. Its not terrible at idle but it does make your hands shake and as soon as you give it a touch more throttle it is smooth.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
