|TheGlassMaker||Yes it is different, I would suspect that to be the problem. MAF could need a cleaning too.|

|V3N0M951||so my focus starts up but the idle stays super high doesnt drop and got the code 1506. I have been reading up the TPS is different from manual to automatic? the motor came from a manual, and my focus is an automatic would this affect it?|

Nothing wrong with bringing it up that's what its here for.
You should be able to just use a 00 harness. I would keep the newer harness as well just in case you be to splice something in. Another thing with the '02.5 engine is the throttle body is different. But as along ad you have a '02.5 throttle cable it will work.
You can't mix a pre 02.5 throttle cable with a 02.5 throttle body or vis versa.

|tony17090||Hello I am new to the forum and sorry for bringing up an old subject. I am currently in the middle of this swap at the moment and have run into a small issue. I have a 00 focus with a 00 zetec wiring harness but the engine and engine harness where I sourced the parts from is the 02.5 newer style connector. Could I just source a 00 zetec engine harness and that would fix my issue? Or do I have to source a 02.5 wiring harness and dash harness?|

also you will need speedo cable and possiblty dash cluster, mainly depending whether the speedo cable is mechanical or electrical.
there is a good 5spd swap write up on another forum, the transmission you will need is called mtx75 used on several generation of ford cars but you will need one froma focus.

Easiest swap for you would be to get the same year focus. Hatchback, sedan, and wagon any will work. Hatchbacks are easier to find. And all hatch backs from 00-02 had the zetec. From 03-04 some had the 2.3 duratec and some had the zetec.
Now for the badnews. Your spi manual trans will not work on the zetec it will need to swapped out. You will also need axles, shift linkage, ect.

I dont believe i dropped a valve seat, but i think my connecting rod is done. im really wanting to do this swap from the spi to the zetec but im not sure. im not sure if my manual tranny is compatible with the swap, to be honest i dont have any clue what im doing. all i would like to know is if its possible to do the swap in my car and if someone could give me some info on what motor to look for specifically?

|tryingtofixthis||Yes you need batt cables. They connecct at terminals to about 5 different things each including fuse box. On zetec pos batt cable I a very simple runs from batt to starter to alt. The negative if I remember correctly is incorporated in the wiring harness.|
