engine mounts, vac hoses, fuel lines, a/c lines, tb cables, cc module and associated cables, axles. Beyond that, you'd have to talk to someone who has done this kind of swap. Read some of the other threads on this subject.

I have done this swap numerous times, and have all the parts needed in the yard here. Let me know if you want more details and a price. I also offer installation if you can get the car to Wisconsin.

Youve done the SPI to 2.3D swap? Or the SPI to Ztec swap?

Doing a 2.3 swap is gonna require a lot more work than a Ztec swap.

Both. A 2.3 swap is not too much harder than a Zetec swap. I am a Automotive tech for a living, so I have all the tools, a lift, and everything. I also work part time at a salvage yard that deals with Focuses almost exclusively.
