Question V-8 Focus

I'm new here. Just wondering if any one has put a V-8 in a 2 door 05-07 yet. I know of a guy in the Atlanta Area who has one, but its way to radical and its a 4 door. His is a 353 inch twin turbo small block Ford. I wouldn't want something that radical.

Putting one in a 3 door would be basically the same as the 4 door, its actually not a simple job no matter what engine you plan on running.

I'll move this to Motor and transmission swap forum, you'll get more help there.

a swap in a 05-07 would be no different than one of the earlier cars. you are changing all the parts that make the two cars different any way lol

not true! the hood, front bumper cover, headlights and front clip are different too! lol

but seriously though. check this out if you want everthing to get as smoothly as possible and you have 10 grand laying around. otherwise you will have to fabricate all this stuff.
