Just paid off my F150 and am about to get my wife a new Edge Sport, so "my" truck will officially be mine to do what I wish with.
Truck is a 2005 F150 SCREW FX4.
I have been doing some Google Fu all day, looking for info. about swapping a manual transmission into this newer style F150. All I run into is guys doing manual swaps/upgrades in the 97-03 F150's and guys just dreaming about doing the swap into the newer 05+ F150's
I have a few questions for some of the guys out there with some know how. I am a fully capable fabricator,welder and mechanic. Just need to get the parts together that I would need.
I'm currently working over seas, so I can't run out and check out my truck at the moment, or else I wouldn't need to ask most these questions. I am trying to get some parts ordered for when I go home on leave this January.
From what I gather, these trucks came with a manual transmission behind a V6. So I assume the fire wall and trans. tunnel are stamped for a manual option? Just cut out what I need and go to town? Can anybody confirm this?
I have been reading that the ZFS5-47 is a 5 speed manual from a 99-01 SD gas, with a 31 spline output shaft? I assume my transfer case is a BW4416, that's a 31 spline? I need to confirm what T-Case I have in my truck, as I'm not 100% sure? Would my T Case bolt up to the ZFS5-47?
I guess we will start there with my questions.
So to sum it all up.
What clutch pedal assy. can I use? (the 05+ V6 manual one?)
What master and slave cyl set up can I use?
Will my T Case bolt up to a 5 speed ZFS5?
My T Case is the automatic 4x4 one, can this option be used with the manual trans.? Or do I need the manual 4x4 shift set up?
Can I use my SCT X Cal 3 to reflash my stock ECU?
I found a parts truck and just ordered the clutch pedal Assembly, along with the shifter set up, the boot to cover the hole and some misc hardware. I guess I'm just going to dive in and get to it,since it seems as if nobody else has done it.
Found some pictures of a 4.2l V6 manual 8th gen F150. I would need to get rid of my center counsel deal that sits inbetween my captains chairs.
