  • 1998 Contour LX 2.0 to 2.5 Engine Swap

    Would it be possible to engine swap a 1998 LX 2.0 liter with a 1999 SE 2.5 liter? I read on here that "gear ratios are the same for all MTX75s used in Contours/Cougars/Mystiques. the final drive ratio is different between the Zetec (4cyl) and Duratec (v6) engines though. you cannot use a Zetec trans on a Duratec engine as they have a different bellhousing pattern as well as a different input shaft length."

    Is that true? I found a 98 in great shape but the 2.0 is a bit slow for me.

    I'm not the only one that would tell you right away, but look harder for one with the 2.5L from the factory and forget about the swap.
