I know this is an over done topic, but I tried searching answers, and there is so much to filter through, and my internet is not co-operating with me tonight, so I decided to just post a thread. I have a 2000 SE with an SPI with 200,000 KMs on it, that currently runs, but who knows for how much longer. Because of this, I want to do the swap to a Zetec. Now my car is an automatic, but the donor car I have found is a manual, and I would like to keep my auto trans. Would I be able to do that? Also, any tips, opinions and tricks are welcome.
