6 Speed Swap Finished!!!!!!!Yes It can be done on a Zetec.....

Well it's finished. Pretty straight forward. I love the tranmission. I really went well with the ZX5's setup. There was one problem, got everything together and took it out for a test drive. I guess with the different gearing, it threw the speedo off, then with it being off so much, it was hitting the fuel cut off. Unplugged the speed sensor and it runs great(just no speedometer) So it looks like I'll be sending the chip to McNews to have the ratio reset. Hopefully they can and I'll be calling them tomm. So a chip MUST be used on the 6-speed swap.

Ok here's the parts list.

Transmission
Axles
Shifter Asy
Shift Cables
Fly Wheel
Clutch
Pressure Plate
Upper Tranny Lower Mount(bolts to tranny)
Trans Harness
SVT Flywheel Bolts
Carrier Bearing Mount
Clutch Line(optional)
PS Line(optional)

Basiclly went like a typical transmission swap. Only modifications we had to do were use the speed sensor Pigtail from the SVT harness and pluged it into the stock harness, and then had to do some rerouting of the clutch line and PS Line. Everything else was cake.


Stock Shifter on LH side......SVT on RH Side


Shifter Area Bare


Harnesses(Stock on Top, SVT on Bottom)


Speed Sensor Plug Difference(Had to take the SVT Pigtail and Use in in the Stock Harness


New Clutch Masters Flywheel


Tranny Going In


Axles Going In


Shifter In


Everything Finished

I was always under the impression that the 5 speed was a better performace oriented tranny while the 6 speed is better suited for auto crossing and cruising. Then again your mated to a V6 so that may help a bit. Congrats on the install, your car is looking sweet!

I guess we are good at that.......Just waiting patiently to put that checkmark beside "AWD Focus"

Seems like everytime you shift the 6-speed, the tach is right around 2500(right where the power band on those crower 2's start to kick in.......worked out just how I was hoping........autox here we come..........

I think you need a new shift boot for the interior, that one looks like it's stretched tighter than Joan Rivers' face.

Not a swap I would have done, but at least we can link to this thread when a n00b asks for the millionth time if this can be done.
