Short Throw Shifter

I recently bought a Short Throw Shifter for my 2002 ZX3. I went to install it today, but the housing that came with the shifter is different then what is in my car. After some digging, I found out that Ford changed the cables and housing half way through '02. The shifter I have is from 2001 and my Focus is from the later portion of 2002. Is there any way I could get the shifter to work, or do I need a newer shifter?

Im not expert on this, but I would get a new shifter. Help save the headaches later on if something goes wrong.
