Tranmission swap

due to a problem with my cvt and the lack of mechanics dealing with these gearboxes :oops: , I decided to change to 6 speed asin.
I am from Poland and would like to avoid part names.
list of needed items:
- gear shift cable with jack
- half left axis (I have 4wd)
- tcm bundle (need soldering)
- flywheel (not by chance a torque converter)
I know that abs and tc lose then, but I accept it.
if I buy a set from 2005-2006 I do not have to program? (my Ford is from 2005).
I'm from Poland so I have a problem with parts if the parts will fit with Ford Five hundred, Ford Montego. do you have any auction sites where I can buy the necessary items?
Maybe there will be a specialist who would suggest what could break in my cvt- when 40km passes the key light comes on and there is an error related to oil pressure.
thank you in advance for your help.
regards Krzysztof. :D

I know you're also going to need the PATS from the donor, as well as I think the ignition switch.. possibly the entire ignition lock/switch assembly. You have to make sure you address the ignition key security component of this as well.

I did some cursory research on this myself (just in case). All of the info you need as far as how to do this is on this website.

Honestly, if I were to approach this, the best bet is to find and purchase an entire parts/donor car. Perhaps a 6-sp Five Hundred or Montego that had been rear-ended in a collision... or even a roll-over.

There is no such a thing as an AWD version of the 6-speed. If you put it in the 6-speed Aisin trans, you will have to give up AWD. All of the AWD 500s and Montegos came with the CVT.

if I don't change ecu do I need Pats?
people on the forum assumed TCM from other vehicles and did not even have to program them. On ebay I saw a set programmed for my VIN and assumption 6 speed.
How much does it cost like you wrote a damaged Ford 500 you think it might be a good idea.
I know that unfortunately I will lose my 4wd.

PATS is integrated in the ECU, so if you use the existing ECU, then no, you do not have to do anything to PATS.
