Search...has been discussed hundreds of times.

a stock focus mtx is 'performance' enough with an aftermarket clutch, flywheel and diff.

You'll need a laundry list of parts for the swap, will have to splice the oss to the vss and will need your pcm reflashed. parts used will run you 1k-1.5k, you'll pretty much need a donor car. And paying someone to do the swap is pointless and not worth it, so you'll have to decide if this is something you think you'd be capable of.

I always wonder at people wanting to do these complicated, expensive swaps. Just trade the car for something optioned like you want. Besides any swap like that will decrease the value if you trade or sell the car.

Doesn't have to be, Mine will cost me ~$800 when all is said and done. The car isn't worth much anyway so i wouldn't be worried about that.
and it doesn't have to be complicated, with the right tools anything is possible.
