|WWAZman||What happens if I leave the harness in tact and change the brain? (And engine) ? Car no start? Car engine go boom?|

|WWAZman||Went to a salvage yard today..list of zetec engines 2000... I happened to take a pic of my wagon tx the other day and it is pvab xs4p cf... One of the tx's I saw still attached to one of the zetecs was pvac 1s4p DA...is that a problem?|

|WWAZman||Well I was under the impression that I needed to replace the harness or am I mistaken/ maybe I'm looking at the wrong harness? In the wagon, under the glovebox, big silver box, that big wide harness?|

Tach. cluster swaps interchangeably with the base cluster, but only when the harness is the same type. For example, the duratec engine instrument clusters do NOT swap with zetec as the harness has a different connector.
If you're changing the entire harness including the instrument cluster connection, the instrument cluster to match needs to be used.

|WWAZman||Sure..I took pictures ..the first one (without tach) is the wagon...the second one with tach is my sedan...I'm also trying to figure out how to get the harness for the computer undone and backed up through the firewall?|

Iirc you could use the same intake tube. Yes about the automatic harness abbreviations.

|WWAZman||could I/should I worry about the dash panel or just leave it with what it has in the wagon?|

bought a junked FF 2000 wagon. finally tore the engine apart to discover massive damage in the head (lol sounds like the start of a joke) ...
...not sure if it's the same issue as heads dropping but clearly mine are exploded through, so a replacement engine is a must. $1400 for a SPI engine is out of the question, and I've found some engines for around 300-400..
I also HAVE a 2000 FF Sedan SE with zetec engine (NO I am NOT parting it out) that I drive currently, and it occurred to me that the dash panels are different vs the wagon.. when I am putting in the new zetec engine to the wagon, is it going to need a different panel or is it cool with what it has? (I see the list of stuff I need to get yes)
oh.. the wagon is spi automatic and putting a zetec automatic in.
I also have a question about swapping the foglights from a sedan to a wagon, but not sure if that needs to go to a different thread.. wasn't sure how the wiring for the switch would go?
lastly,... are you SURE I have to change the intake tube? They look the same to me. Also, I assume ATX is the Automatic Transmission harness?

|slocuspocus||ok thank you. man that kinda sucks. I used to mess with dodge neons and swap 2.4 stratus engines in them. All you needed was a motor mount adapter, a taller hood, and a little bit of soldering/heat shrink to the existing engine harness and you are done. these focus's require quite a bit more and I am not sure if I think it is worth it yet. it just seems like alot of crap for a motor swap especially when the motor we are talking about was a option in the focus from the dealer. i dunno for sure but i doubt the power gains will be as rewarding as i would want it to be with the time and money it is gonna cost. and im not the type of person to take my car/truck goes a shop or dealership for anything either. Does anyone know if i can at least use the 5 spd trans that came on this spi with a zetec?|
