Umm... In the conversion you basically remove all the Focus suspension (and that is what makes the Focus, especially the SVT so special in the first place) and bolt on a Mustang rear end and suspension.
So basically you are making a Mustang Hatchback.

Exactly, its not a Cobra engine swap, its a Focus chassis swap into a mustang driveline. You dont keep the rear multilink suspension, which is responsible for a lot of what makes the Focus good. For the $10k+ it'd cost, just buy yourself a mustang and have 2 working cars.
