Up to this day I have not seen any direct fit conversion kits. It all depends on how much money you have, and how much are you willing to spend. After that, almost everything is possible.

If you have some* money then yea, AWD fofo is easy**.


* some = a lot in this case

** easy doesn't really mean easy in this case

the volvo s40 is awd and thats on the same platform as the 2010 focus, so technically it is possible if you have one of them

the euro ford mondeo can come awd as well, and they have a dtec in them

however it is impossible without massive money

buy an sti or evo if that's your concern

x2 with HaveBlue83.

I believe it was a gentleman by the name of Ozan from Turkey who had started an AWD project, then had some sort of mechanic/shop issues and completely dropped off the face of the planet. Here's the link:
Project: 4WD cossie powered WRC kitted Focus!!! *56K;noway!

not to burst your bubble, but you're better off buying an evo/Sti then use the money you saved buying one of those to mod the hell out of it....or buy a skyline....
