contour/cougar tranny

I am looking into getting a new tranny. I was wondering what would i need to do to get a cougar/contour tranny to fit my zetec. I know they are both mtx75 but am unsure if i need new axles and other stuff. Thanks!

why would you want that tranny? focus trannies are everywhere and inexspensive as well, lots of mods for them too

contour trannies have a different gear set. they are also inexpensive and easy to find.

is it really worth modifying though, it'll probobly cost the same to set up your focus to work with one when you could just get a new diff and clutch installes in your mtx 75

hehe, installing clutch as we speak, looking forward to only spending 250 for a tranny w/ 4.06 final drive. the work to get 4.06 into a focus tranny would cost me well over that. plus, the tranny i have now needs syncro work [B)]

well good luck on it. im not sure what all would need to be done. taking it to a tranny shop and telling them your plans maybe ur best bet there. where are u gettin that tranny at for $250. not bad at all. if it does work let me know how it drives on the highway at higher speeds and stuff. i had a mustang gt that was geared and it was pretty awkward on the highway after that

i got a used tranny for $1k w/ 4.06s and quaife..........it is direct fit, dont see how needing custom work for a $250 tranny is better, are these trannies the quality of the MTX75?

these trannies ARE mtx 75 just with diff gearing. i was also reading on some contour site that they have upgraded syncros (not sure, could not find much info on this). i don't think i will need any custom work

You can install the gear set for the MTX 75 that is in the Contour/Cougar platform and just use the stock Focus axles. They are stronger than the others anyways.
