SVT Focus Wagon build

New to forum, but I thought I would share this project. Started a new project last week. SVT Focus Wagon. I wanted a SVT Focus Wagon, so I thought I would build one. I found a near perfect SPI 2.0 auto wagon. It had the notorious #4 cylinder valve seat failure, so I got it for a great price($400.00). I purchased a 2004 5 door SVT. It was hit hard in the front. Great price though($275.00). It had 120k on the odometer. Got both disassembled. I found another SVT with the European appearance option. Between all of the doner cars, I have enough parts to fully option my wagon. When completed, I will have installed the sunroof as well. My wagon does not have the sunroof now. That will be done at a later date. For now, I will show the complete process. I'm hoping this swap will be completed in a week. It may prove difficult. I work a full time job in the day. I'll try to add pics. I already set the engine in. Sorry. But that's the super simple part. It's everything else that's time consuming.

Welcome!

Good thread on that swap in the Engine & Trans Swap section, should save you some figuring to see what worked for another project.

Wouldn't THINK of swapping in the sunroof though, only requires cutting out and welding in the whole roof plus wiring/hoses/interior ceiling cover replacement.

Thanks. This is not my first swap. I've swapped about 50 SPI to Zetecs. I just built a 2007 ST clone for my son. I thought I would share my adventures on this swap.

OK fine, thread is in the right location for a build thread.

Just thought that shared info. would help, much more involved than the zetec swaps include.

Every bit of info helps. I didn't mean to sound like I know everything. I hope that I didn't come off like that.

No problem, I can't remember all the details so referring you was safer to catch ALL of them.

Swapping the trans as well means axles and shifter to match, SVT swap needs wiring harness and PCM moved over along with the IMRC, even the fuel pump is different. It becomes a MUCH larger project than the zetec into an SPI where much can be reused.

Didn't get anything accomplished on my SVT wagon today. I did finish a SPI engine swap this afternoon. Runs and drives amazing. It's for sale if anyone is near East Tennessee looking for a super clean nice Focus.
