Use the search, there's been quite a few, Be prepared to spend atleast 6k and do alot of custom fabbing for the V6.

V8 swap is $5500 for the rwd kit, thats without a motor/trans.

I'm just telling you the kit to convert the focus to rwd and get it ready for the motr and trans is 5500, if you buy the 5.0 cammer the kit is intended for you're looking at another 15k, but i'd just find a wrecked stang or explorer and pull it outta there.

it is bolt in and not really that bad, just takes a lot of time and tools if you do it yourself and A LOT of money if you pay for it...

I think it's pretty much bolt-on but there's so much "little stuff" to do it adds up.

I.E. relocate battery, fuel cell, etc.
