I went out yesterday and i acquired a EATC unit from a Ford at a Local Junk Yard, i did not notice it before but this has only one larger connect and mine has 2 smaller ones i do not feel like ripping apart the car and driving 30 to get to the only junk yard that has cars with the eatc setup, is there a adapter that can be acquired or i just plain screwed?

If you have the knobs and such, you cannot put the EATC in easily. Basically gotta change a ton of stuff out and rewire a ton of stuff :(

As a side note, can the Gen4.5 EATC/stereo head-unit be added to an '05 with manual temp. controls, or is there an incompatibility with the connections? Just trying to find out if its a mod that's possible to do.

It's possible, but you have to re-wire the whole dash.

Sure it's possible, but its not simple at all. Wires, vacuum lines, etc. Stick to your manual temp controls or get a SEL w/the EATC.
