    Settling In Well
  1. Engine/gearbox Compatibility?

    Ok. So will a manual mtx75 box fit a former-auto engine either?
  2. Engine/gearbox Compatibility?

    Let me clear this up a little. My 1.8 is a manual. The 2.0 was automatic. Without its origianal automatic gearbox which i dont want, will the 2.0 fit my gearbox. Ps, keeping same ecu aswell. ie, whereas it normally fits the auto box, will it also bolt up to my manual one.
  3. Engine/gearbox Compatibility?

    Hi. So ive got a 1.8 mk1 focus zetec. The bottom end is rattling, hence; knackered. However, im looking to do an engine change. I've spotted a mint 2.0 automatic engine. Question is, will this fit straight up to my manual gearbox and is there any ACTUAL difference between a manual engine and this one that i need to be aware of? All help welcome.

But can be altered to cat back. For a pic of the exhausts check this link - www.cats-direct-shop.co.uk/parts/FORD/escort/1.6/1999/_/129/exhaust-systems. This is for 1.6 escorts mind. Hope it helps
