Can you be more specific about "gave out"?

Thread gives a pretty good idea of what's needed, though it doesn't show it totally complete it's running. Poster on the last page offered a parts list, that would depend on what year your donor trans was from (MkIII had different shift hookup on the trans).

Shade010 from RDC can prob. help as well if you're serious with the final electronics.

I did the swap in my '12 with a MTX-75 from the same model year. Im working with Tom from Focus-Power using an SCT tuner to take care of electronic end of the conversion.

I will post updates on my progress

If you'd post the part numbers in a list it would be greatly appreciated. This way everyone has access to it.

Almost There

Hello Everyone---I have completed the mechanical portion of the swap in my 2012. I used a tranny out of a 2012 like 68futura. I have started to work on the electrical part and tried grounding the wire from the tcm to the pcm using the clutch switch but have no start even with the brake held down. It will crank but does not fire and is giving an engine malfunction warning on the dash. Nothing has been said about clearing codes for this to work. I have pm'ed 68futura about his electrics. Mechanical part is pretty straight forward. Not a lot of space under that dash! Hope I haven't killed it. Thanks for any replies in advance---John M.

Well my wife's 2014 Ford Focus auto trans is now having a harsh shifting noise when it downshifts and after reading about the problem I'm contemplating doing the swap to the manual MTX75. Definitely interested in this. Why cant the PCM just be swapped from a manual focus solve any of the electronic issues? If this can be done, dare I say I will also be putting my focus under "surgery" as the trans noise seems to be getting a worse the longer I wait.

It'd be great if Ford sold a basic wiring kit, to help.
