SVT to AWD

I"m going to be swapping a Mistubishi evo 7 into a 02 svt focus. Most of it will be fabricated(crossmember ect.......).just taking some opinions from fellow board members to see what people think. Im doing this bc i set a motor in and it actually fits better than the ej20 out of a subaru. I love the look of the focus,and since everyone talks about a awd focus,ill give it a shot. I got everything from engine to tranny to axles rear end ecm ect. for under 3k,so I couldn't pass up the chance to see if it can be done. I hope to have it done by summer.

I hope you're ready for a lot of fabrication. And this will be quite the quest.

u may also need to do something along the lines of custom half shafts since depending on what the evo's wheel base is side to side. it might be wider then the focus. idk. will be bad ass project tho. also what are you going to do for suspension on the front? evo suspension or focus? i'm guessing the rear will be evo suspension. sorry for the bombardment of questions i just think thats bad ass!

Pics or it didn't happen.
Seriously, lots of pics please! I love the European projects where they photodocument every step of the build.
