OK, so friend at local salvage yrd shows on his computer that the 2.3 interchanges from 03 to 07??
Mileage 0 Miles (0 = not available or unknown)
Notes 2.3L DOHC 2006
This part will fit these makes and models with these options
FOCUS 03-04 DOHC, 2.3L (4-140, PZEV)
FOCUS 05-07 (DOHC), 2.3L (4-140)

the st models came with the 2.3 stock so i dont see why it wouldnt interchange, you would probably need the computer or harness with it

why swap the 2.3 head on?
i'm not a huge duratec guy but what are teh advantages...

i dont see a race header or cams/valve springs anywhere on that list..or an upgraded clutch or anything for suspension besides the drop..i mean sway bars arent necessarily needed but you definitely want them to firm up the handling even more so. just sayin.

when i said full exhaust i ment header also. also i ment to put clutch with the flywheel. my fault for miss posting. also i was looking at stress bar for rear. i have a massive strut brace now. i would like bushing upgrade but all places stop at 04 on part listings. but i am sure they should fit a 07. atleast some should. but when i ask people like a few scca guys i never get a reply back. hate to waste monay & not get to install them.

If your thnking Cosi why not go with the Cosi knock off
03-19-2011, 12:42 PM
that is why i said cosi style. i was thinking of the knock off. was not sure if i wanted to spend the extra for the knock off or go with the escape one.
or may have my friend make me one. he has built custom turbo systems & intakes for past 12yrs. he had a 87 stang with his own build( old svo 2.3 block) made 424hp / 440tq. intake, header, his own custom stand alone full system even with turbo set up. i can go on about him & all the cars & people he sponsors. but he does a lot on toyotas & hondas. my focus will be his first. so looking for ideas for our build.
today i was looking for 2.0 blocks, pistons & rods.
