Zetec to diesel swap

My brother has a 2000 Focus Zetec with an automatic transmission and he's looking to swap to the European diesel Focus motor.
Will that bolt up to he current tranny? Other than fuel line stuff, what else do you think he would need?
Also, are there any other vehicles the Focus diesel was in?

that will definately not pass US emissions so keep that in mind even though you're in florida...it will also not run on the new US low-sulfer diesel so also keep that in mind...

I'm not worried about emissions, you'd be surprised by the amount of cars down here that wouldn't pass.
I didn't think about the low-sulfur diesel part though. That's a bummer.
Maybe he'll just have to do the 5.0 swap like I've been telling him to.

thanks man

Low sulphur is what modern turbo-diesel cars needs to run. That is stuff u can find easilly in EU. Was hard until recently in the US. So that's not a problem. What Tom's mentioned was OK with old Diesel and TD cars...modern one you will destroy...sooner or later

So the low-sulfur diesel over here does work with the recent EU Focus diesel motors?.... alrighty then.

I've been researching the cooking oil changeover quite a bit. Great idea but my brother's much too lazy to do it.

yes you can but buying a front clip front europe so you can get all the parts is almost half as much as an old vw tdi and that doesn't include the labvor of the swap. i really looked into doing this

If I helped put a 6.4 power stroke in my brother's car I'd end up taking it from him and entering every burn out competition I could find.

arrestmespi, do you have any more links or info on switching it to a TDI?
That's something I'd definitely look into doing.
