The jaguar transmission cannot be used on a zetec 4cyl, the input shaft is too large in diameter, and cannot be swapped out becuase of the extra parts inside the case to run the transfer case. UNLESS you take it out and have the shaft machined to match the focus transmission's input shaft.

The transfer case seems eaily adaptable to the focus transmission by making a custom "adaptor shaft"....something about the size of a household toilet paper tube which would have the splines/diameter of the stock axle on one end to mount into the transmission output port, and on the other side have the splines/diameter for the input side of the transfer case. Then you shorten the passenger axle.

The front subframe has to be cut in half and the center "boxed out" to fit a driveshaft through.

The rear either has to be a completely custom subframe, an escape modified subframe, or a cobra IRS cutom mounted. All of which require removal of the gas tank and spare tire well in the floor pan. Also all require adapting mounts for the jaguar rear differential because it spins "reverse" to conventional rear diffs.....


The only way to use a jag transmission is to use the 2.5 or 3.0 v6 as well.
Just machine the input shaft

i dont want to see this tread die out......

if you were to machine the input shaft then you would be able to use the jag trans?

also if tha be the case, what would you have to do to mount it all up?

and if you need any info from alldata i can get it for you.....

theoretically, yes.....you could remove the input shaft from the jag trans and have it machined to fit the zetec motor. the mounting of the trans to the motor should be no different. the only possible problem is clearing the steering rack/exhaust tunnel.

how much clearance would you need for the driveshaft to clear the steering rack

has anyone thought about using the set up out of a awd fusion, will it work for the focus( oviously you'd have to trim the axles to work or find ones that will work) I was thinking about it the other day as I was driving behind a fusion. and I'd like to know if you could use the fusion fuel cell so you don't have to put a fuel cell in your trunk and completely lose the trunk or hatch.

Hi guys, I don't own a focus or anything, but I'm a major lurker on theses forums.
I really like to read about people's foci and see the progress on builds and such. I almost did get a focus on numerous occasions, but somehow i just ended up with my Monty.

aaaaanyways
I just wanted to join to post that my mom has a courtesy car from jaguar right now, and it's an AWD X-type. If you guys need me to take any measurements or pictures, I'd be glad to help.
(I'm willing to climb under it and everything)
