well......for the MTX75..........there is really only two options, and one of them i dont even know if it is possible.

there are no 3.82 gearsets available for a 8.8 rear end. there IS one for the 9" rear end.
http://store.summitracing.com/egnsea...115+4294776274

now the other thing is that the cobra rear IRS has nearly identical moutning points to the 8.8 rear.......so that shouldnt be too bad to mount to the focus, as it was in that picture on page 4 i think

the cobra rear IRS is a 8.8

sucks for me. now the other option i was speaking of is to see if a custom gearset could be made for 3.82 for the 8.8

then i would be all set.
i would use the cobra IRS with a 3.82 and be golden.

uhhh.. you have to figure out what gear ratio accomplishes a 1:1 ratio. Where a complte axle turn = a complete wheel turn. It has nothing to do with the final drive of the focus transmission.

If all the previous information is correct;

Input to Transfer box is the same speed as to the front right wheel.
The Transfer box has no reduction (1:1).

Then you cannot use a conventional reduction diff as used on 8.8.
You can only use the Jag rear end, which will be 1:1, same speed in as speed out.

If you also look at my earlier post, the transfer box output to the rear turns the opposite way to a normal trans output, so the Jag rear IS the only one you can use.

(The system, branded "Traction-4" by Jaguar, utilises a unique Visteon design that drives the rear differential "backwards." )

So? Cryo treat a jag rear diff and get custom axles.

Well, my AWD Focus plans just got put on hold for a couple of months.....

I ran across a GREAT deal on a LOW milage 1996 MYSTIC SVT Cobra that I just couldn't pass up.... and the modding has already began on it.

Once I get the Cobra the way i want it in a month or two I'll actually START the AWD Fofo project... plus it'll be warmer out in the shop by then.

Cool Summary?

Can someone post a summary of what is known? With or without opinion of what the final drive ratio should be is fine. Did we confirm the JaGX transfer case bellhousing etc....
Thanks-

SUMMARY:


The jaguar transmission cannot be used on a zetec 4cyl, the input shaft is too large in diameter, and cannot be swapped out becuase of the extra parts inside the case to run the transfer case. UNLESS you take it out and have the shaft machined to match the focus transmission's input shaft.

The transfer case seems eaily adaptable to the focus transmission by making a custom "adaptor shaft"....something about the size of a household toilet paper tube which would have the splines/diameter of the stock axle on one end to mount into the transmission output port, and on the other side have the splines/diameter for the input side of the transfer case. Then you shorten the passenger axle.

The front subframe has to be cut in half and the center "boxed out" to fit a driveshaft through.

The rear either has to be a completely custom subframe, an escape modified subframe, or a cobra IRS cutom mounted. All of which require removal of the gas tank and spare tire well in the floor pan. Also all require adapting mounts for the jaguar rear differential because it spins "reverse" to conventional rear diffs.....


The only way to use a jag transmission is to use the 2.5 or 3.0 v6 as well.
