I really like the idea of having the nice Sony touch screen Titanium head unit AND the correct functioning and Fun transmission.

Thanks for the help and props to you guys. The DCT is pure garbage.
As long as urs is a titanium, but if not you have to swap thw whole body harness also

Does anyone have the part number for the shift tower on the mk3 manual trans? I either can't find it or I don't know what I'm looking for exactly.

Which part? The base or shifter itself?

Neither, the shift tower is the name for the shifting mech. that sticks into the transmission to change gears.

IIRC it's shown for the MkIII at the beginning section of the thread.

Thats exactly right. I can't find the part number for it or figure out how the OP got his hands on a new one.

Did the trans not come with it?

The shift tower is the one part that seperates the mk3 trans from the older ones. If you wanted to use a previous model trans(because they are cheaper or to get a different final drive) you would need the new shift tower.

OP used an earlier model trans, and converted it to match MkIII cables & shift lever by swapping the shift tower.

I can't read all the numbers on the boxes he pictured, blow it up & better eyes might help.

I'd look at the FordParts.com site, and as usual for parts listings it MAY be in an odd location. Like maybe with shifter & cables instead of the transmission. Gotta be inventive in figuring out where to look, the people making the listings do NOT think like mechanics....
