A great person to ask would be drunkyoda. He did the zetec swap with a mtx.

I haven't made any progress yet. I will be making Trips to my local junk yards starting Monday to start pulling the necessary parts. I can get a complete engine with accessories and wiring for 219.00 plus an 80.00 core, but I have a spare 4.0l v6 laying around I will turn in for a core.

[Drunkyoda] I will probably be in touch soon.

I will try to get as many pictures and information about the process as possible to build a complete write up about swapping.

(Update) I just found a wrecked 2003 Focus ZTS 5 Speed!! Hope this Deal doesn't fall through.

I have searched around and haven't found anything that tells me the parts from the 2003 will be incompatible. Does anyone know if the car being a 2003 will be an issue at all?

What year is your car again? I use FF Mobile most of the time and I can't see you profile info under your avatar.
From what I can remember, your switching everything out anyways as long as the engine, trans match the ecu. You'll be fine. Just get the harness, engine, trans all the same year. Same car if possible and since your looking at a donor car you should have no issue.

They reprogram your original key. I also only had one they made a second for me. I believe it came out to $50-60 for the key and reprogram and it takes like 10-15mins.
