    Hi
    I am new to this forum. I couldn't find this in my searches. Has anyone tried to install a manual trans from a 01-04 Escape in a ZX2? Our race car needs more gear and this seems to have it. It has a lower final drive ratio and lower 1st and 2nd gears. I'm not sure about the axles or input splines. Someone must have tried it!
    Let me know.
    Thanks!

    From what I know. If it’s the G5m manual trans it should be a direct fit with the shafts and all.

    Thanks racecar. I'm going to try it as soon as I find one. They seem to be like hens teeth! I'll post my success or failure.
