I know you need the ECU, search around, this might get better answered tomorrow. Someone recently did a swap, so you should be able to get some more info when more people are online.

If you can find a early 2000 focus tranny you will end up with a better syncro on 3rd, however like all of us you will need to replace it eventually. I'm doing a tranny rebuild right now, and its due to the third gear syncro even though I had the better syncro. GOOD LUCK.

Master and slave cylinders, flywheel, shifter itself and I'm sure there is more.

I just did the tranny swap. Found a manual ECU on eBay for $25. Reflash at the Ford dealership was $135. Mike (b16sir1991) helped me with the parts list since he has done it before. Trust me... SO worth the effort if you like your car currently. If the donor car is better, just sell yours and buy it.

The swap is not hard. It can just be a PITA.
