the guy was me i believe - yep gotta make a set of custom axles otherwise all bolts up with the exception of a couple bolt holes on the bottom of the trans (not a big deal). Make sure the trans is from a 2001-2003 Escape with the zetec motor and 2wd...

typically the reason for going to an escape trans is the bulletproof closed diff carrier with 4 spider gears, the 4.59:1 final drive, and the closer ratios.

my original s/r got one of these in it with a .72:1 5th gear set added - i'm able to run 225/50-15 tires and still have plenty of off the line grunt, as well as having 4th gear tach out around 105mph (great for 4th gear acceleration through the 1/4 mile traps)

Nope, I've not gotten around to installing it in my spare tranny yet but its one of the first MFactory units. No modification necessary  :twisted:
