wow, good job & thx for the info... I bought a brand new 2014 Focus se hatchback with the auto/manual trans. I shopped around online and it appears that most of the parts to do the conversion arent too expensive.. I plan on doing a conversion on mine later down the road, but along the way, I'll buy a part here and a part there...

I'll do a post on it soon but I got all the console parts from a bone yard (except the ebrake lever that was a new take off) it all goes together easy but you DO need the bracket off of the base of the newer level console. Had to wait an extra couple of days for the junkyard to send it to me.

Really great work!!! Pretty impressive man. Autotragic transmissions on such small cars don't make sense to me anyway.

So amazingly cool that you were successful with this swap

I am extremely interested now in that parts list as well as more details regarding the swap and especially the tune!...

Definitely keeping this swap in mind if/when my DCT gives out

On behalf of the Mk3 community, thank you sir!
