Not. You'd need all wiring for the computer and its software, the focus trans won't fit, you'd need a new hood to fit the TMIC and it's piping...too much trouble.

If I remember correctly I read about this before on here. it is not possible because the way the ms3 engine is even if you got all the turbo goodies off it. The firewall and stuff would get in the way. try searching on here for more info cause I know I've seen it once or twice since I've been part of the forum.
