What engine was in there stock?

zetec manual to zetec manual, no issues will be had. If you run into any it will be due to bad parts or something in the instal process being forgot.

If it's anything else you're going to have to be more specific.

the motor was put in by someone else. out of an automatic focus. Come to me with turn key and nothing. Found the pcm fried so put a new pcm to get it to turn over. Turned over then crank no start. finding that they did not change the crank sensor bushing. Pulled the tranny out replaced bushing now have crank signal. Still no run. Put a new coil on now can get it running at part throttle but idles VERY poorly. it seems to be running very rich....
