SHO taurus motor in a Focus?

has anyone ever contemplated sticking a SHO V8 motor in the focus? cuz ther idea poped into my head earlier, and i was wondering if it would actually fit...because it isnt much bigger than the taurus v6 and ive seen one of those ina focus somewhere on the internet. it was pretty cool. but it would be even cooler with the SHO motor..

They put S/C cobra motors in foci, so I think it will fit. http://www.modified.com/roadtests/04...cus/index.html

y? that would make the car very very hard to register in some cities. since to be legal with most motor swaps the motor has to be out of a same year or new car. and the sho motor is what 15 years old now? y would u wanna do that? let me tell ya how many low milage sho motors your gonna find none.

y not just do this and bolt it right in like i have done?


yea d25 with an mtx75 pulled right out of a 01 cougar and bolted right into my 00 sedan!
