Exclamation ATX out, MTX in

Well I am purchasing a brand new MTX from one of the members here. The Transmission would actually just bolt up to a normal MTX and all you would need is fluid. So based on that. I am trying to figure out exactly what I will need.

And to those before you say it, I AM NOT TRADING THE CAR~! Parents said I have to keep the car for 4 years or until I finish college, it's in there name so I will not argue.

Now, on to the list...

I have the Duratec 2.0, so I know the motor is mounted differently. Will I just need new brackets and motor mounts? For the motor mounts I will just upgraded to the polyurethane and be done with that.

What I can't find are the part numbers,
I need the bracket numbers that I will have to buy
I need a new wiring harness? how would I go about that exactly.
I guess I will need a new ECU how would I do that as well.

I will buy the parts as the paychecks come in, so maybe by mid summer i will be ready to put this in.

here is a link to the thread so you know exactly what i am buying.

Thanks for the help in adavance
