You will need an ECU, and most likely new brackets.

Contact www.focussalvage.com . They've done one.

200hp focus with HEAVY V6 is gonna be slower than a boosted 200 hp Duratec... weight plays a lot in this kinda thing... plus all the extra rotating mass will slow you down... stay 4 cyl and buy a turbo!

Do you know how much they weigh? I wouldn't imagine it would be all that much more. BTW, if you are going to do it, find an SVT contour engine. I thinik they are like 220hp.

well the Duratec 25 (SVT version) made 195hp and 165ft-lbs... the updated one made 200hp and 169ft-lbs... so I figure ur gonna spend oh anywhere from $4,000-$6,000 doing this swap when you can buy a stage 2 focus sport turbo and have 220 WHP (assuming you have the 2.0) and you wont have all the added weight (however little that may be)...

-Jacob

my info was gathered from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duratec
