Tranny Swap pics

Hey

I have a 2001 zx3 with an ATX and am planning to change it to an MTX. A friend who has seen this done in other cars told me that the job may not be the same as factory. He told me it looked kind of weird.

Is this the case with the focus??

Could the people that have done this already post a couple of pictures of the outcome???
(interior, etc.)


Thanks for the help!!!

Look at a 5-Speed Focus engine bay and interior, your will look exactly the same. There is no cutting or anything, heck the consoles are the same between MT and AT........

Its in the dash. You would have to get a aftermarket tach. You dont read rpms in the automatic. I've only seen this in some focus's and in my moms corolla.

You don't have to have a tach with a Manual, I've seen many cars in the past not have them..........but if you need one, buy a cluster with a tach and swap it...........still no cutting, the only difference will be the tach in the cluster, all will still look stock..........

Considering your in PR and I imagine parts aren't readily available. Maybe you should look into building up your auto and just leaving it there.

What are your plans, do you just want a 5 speed?

Yes, I do want a 5-speed. And after that I plan on going FI. Building up my auto is not an option. I have looked into it many times and it will end up costing way more than a tranny swap.
