: i kno i was talking about going SHO....
06-28-2009, 04:08 PM
i was talking about putting a SHO engine in my car, the someone pointed out itll be harder to register unless the engine that goes in is a same year or newer.
Does anyone kno if the V6 from the Mazda6 would bolt in like the cougar engine? or would the mounts have to change.
06-28-2009, 04:17 PM
from what i have read on the cougar forums alot of the mazda 6 v6 stuff will swap over. did the make an 05 ford taurus tho? if so that would fit. they swap the 3l out of those right into the cougars.
06-28-2009, 04:46 PM
i think they did. but those only come in automatics..i dont want an automatic...ecspecially from a taurus.
06-28-2009, 04:47 PM
what about the 3.0d from the fusion?
06-28-2009, 05:36 PM
idk about the fusion. but u can use the d30 from a taurus and use the mtx75 out of a cuogar or contour. they bolt right up. look into the cougar/coutour 3l swaps.
06-28-2009, 05:53 PM
NO. The SHO died off 99. Now it's FINALLY back for 2010. And only the 96-99 came with ONLY ATX options.
06-28-2009, 06:14 PM
btw, IIRC, the mazda and fusion engine are either/both VVT or VCT (I dont remember, but all I know is that the ECU may not work. though as far as I know it hasn't been done)
06-28-2009, 08:16 PM
so would the 3.0d and the SVT contor 6spd i beleve link up?
06-28-2009, 08:22 PM
and where would u even find performance parts for the cougar/contor engine
06-28-2009, 08:48 PM
yes the sctcontour trans would bolt up to a d30. and as far as performance mods for the dura v6's i'm slowly starting to find more and more. alot of guys just swap svt cams and intakes to there non svt motors. but since u would already have all of that just headers intake and boost would do thetrick. theres a few company's with a turbo set up and one super charger set up for them that i have found.
06-29-2009, 01:08 AM
for the d30 or the SVT contor engine?
06-29-2009, 01:10 AM
u can use eaither or it dont matter. might as well go with the d30 then u can always swap in svt cams
06-29-2009, 01:52 AM
they make svt cams for the 30d?
06-29-2009, 03:01 AM
D25 (contour SVT...) cams fit in the D30..... so do a lot of other parts.
btw, contour SVTs still use the MTX75 [;)] 5 speed. would've been nice to be 6 speed, but not necessary.
06-29-2009, 04:13 AM
oh ok. what about SVT focus 6spd. and thats good to kno the d25SVT fits on d30. thats probally what ill do.
06-29-2009, 04:31 AM
Getrag 6 speed will not mate up... Too many differences, like the position the starter is mounted, to name one. Btw d30 is not as direct ( if you want to call it that) as the D25 is. You pretty much need to modify some stuff and put some d25 parts on it to actually be in the same position as having a d25
06-29-2009, 05:26 PM
so im better off just going d25SVT and an mtx75. and the d25 bolts right into the focus? same mounts and stuff?
06-29-2009, 05:41 PM
pretty much (no I'm not trying to deter you to do it myself lol [;)]) but for the most part it will go in like 06Roush's will. though I don't know how different, if at all, your 05 is from the 00-04s... btw a 2000 CSVT ECU would be best because it also has the stock "tune" to put it's engine at 200hp. but remember, you'll need an MTX5 off of any ol cougar or contour because of the starter's location.
edit: don't forget......it's not a direct bolt in. he used a mixture of cougar and SPI focus mounts. yours may vary.
06-29-2009, 05:43 PM
so pull the ECM from the contor SVT? alot wiht the trans and motor. best to get it from the same car then. just take everything basically.
06-29-2009, 05:48 PM
yup if you can find a rear, or side collision (rollover's best, but yeah) contour SVT. just buy the whole thing. it'll save you the hassle of having to go back and get parts. and if you find one, see if you can't get the keys that belong to it as well. saves you the hassle of disabling PATS n all that.
06-29-2009, 05:49 PM
would i need the igniton too?
06-29-2009, 06:03 PM
I believe so..... since the keys (if attainable) only fit that cylinder I think. it wouldn't hurt though, especially if you find a whole car like I mentioned.
06-29-2009, 06:04 PM
oh and of course...... you'd need some wiring harnesses (dash, engine.....MAYBE the body but you might be able to splice it all together, depending on your technical skill)
06-29-2009, 06:09 PM
shopuld be able to slice it all. ill just yank all the ecm wires. and harnesses. plus engine harnesses. and where would u get a turbo kit for that?
06-29-2009, 06:11 PM
well I found one.......they seem to be pretty good, and fairly cheap.....
www.nautilusperformance.com check out the turbo builds and stuff, good numbers [thumb]
06-29-2009, 06:19 PM
that is......they are the ones I likely expect to buy from when the engine's done. I've had their site as a bookmark for quite some time. I also just messaged them about the possibility of a high flow cat with their stage 2 or 3 turbo kits.....
06-29-2009, 09:02 PM
ok sorry for not posting on here. the mounts can be changed around and made to be botled right up the way i figured out like mike said. as far as wiring i will be honest. i think some of the spicing would be doin able, but just do your self a favor and get a full wiring harnes body every thing. and find your self one out of a contour since u have a four door and the contours were four doors, and find one with same options and what not so u will have every thing you need. if your serious about this let me know and i can get u the info you need to make the mounts, or hell i can even do it for you.

Not trying to thread jack but back to the first question with the 6 engine. My mom has a 6S. It's really quick and I think having that engine in the focus would be awesome. Would it fit? What about the transmission? I like the mazda auto/manual setup. Since I've never driven stick it would be nice to have that on the go choice like in my mom's car. Just pop it over and to manual and go. Would that be possible?
07-20-2009, 09:42 AM
honestly not sure. but my honest openion is that it would some how fit. i mean look at it like i looked at my v6 swap. if they use the d23 in the 6's then something has to be the same. right? and they use a d23 in the focus. so something else is the same. now u just gotta look down to the similar things and figure out whats different about them, ie motor mounts mainly. and then figure that out. find me some pics i'll look at them.
