Could you put the 6-speed from an SVT in a Duratec? I'm looking at doing a manual swap in my 2009.

What exactly do you mean by all 3 wiring harnesses? I'm getting ready to swap from 2002 Auto SPI to Zetec 5 speed. I have found a 2003 zts 5 speed as a donor car. Will I need to replace the wiring under the dash as well as the engine and transmission harness?

It's been so long, I don't even know.

I do know that the pinout for auto and manual computers is different. You can repin the auto harness to work with the manual computer instead of replacing the harness. Not sure exactly what all needs to be changed, but there are threads here and on focaljet with the various computer pinouts.

Changing the transmission harness is a given.

Maybe the third one was engine harness, but you need to do that anyway with the zetec swap.
