if you are looking at a swap for a manual tranny, it takes more then just bolting up the new transmission....

i am not sure on all the specifics, but you are looking at new ECU, axle, mounts, compression lines, new pedals, shifting linkage, master and slave cylinder.

I am not sure if v6focus is still doing this, but he apperantly used to sell a SPI auto to zetec manual swap kit. it sold for $2000. he runs this website: linky link

if you want to make this worth your while, you better have a good friend who is a very good mechanic or quite a bit of money to spend on labor....

or you could just buy the SCT chip for like 300 or so from focus sport and call it good. that will improve your shift points, optimize fueling and ignition timing, change the rev limiter, and raise the governer, and some other cool stuff. check it out here
