Does anyone know what the difference is between the 5 speed and automatic throttle bodies for the 00-02 zetec?

I am talking about a FC 65mm throttle body. If the 5 speed and auto are the same, why don't they just list one TB and offer an optional bracket if you have an automatic?

i think he was just repeating what focaltech said and then making the point that they should just sell the one TB and then have an optional bracket for those silly enough to get an auto...

Well, well, well, it would seem that Mr. Vassili95 has a masters in automotive engineering and I have apparently been living under a rock for 45 years. Just because I am branded a "ROOKIE" doesn't mean my knowledge of vehicles is limited. I have worked for Ford for over 25 years and have probably forgotten more than Mr. Vassili95 could ever hope to know about them. Now getting back to the issue at hand. I purchased a used FC 65mm throttle body for my sons Focus but the TP sensor will not fit flush against the housing. When I tighten the screws the sensor bows. This is why I asked if there is a difference in the throttle bodies.I was assured that this is the correct throttle body. If it is then it was machined wrong. Any help would be appreciated, and thanks for allowing me to pontificate.
