I believe the 88-89 MT's were 4 speed units but afaik any manual trans (4 or 5 speed) in any 88-93 festiva will work just fine without making any changes as long as you are swapping MT to MT. If you are trying to swap MT to AT or vice versa, then there are a bunch of changes. If you would like more info or to confirm my recollections, check out www.fordfestiva.com.

So, the 4 speeds in 88-89 were L and 5 speeds for 88-89 were LX. 89 also had auto and it's like a unicorn. 89 auto LX is like super rare, maybe? Someone posted one on the fb page the other day. Just an update. happy reading.

Qualis, join www.fordfestiva.com and search on there. Considering you are carb'd, I'm not as familiar with swapping engines in carb cars. But if there's info available, it'll be on the forum. HTH
