There have been multiple V8 conversions here in the 'states on the MkI platform, I would think the MkII C1 platform should be capable of the same. Do a search on the RS8, Ford Racing dropped a 5.0L V8 into a RS.

2.3 stroker will probably be ure best bet as far as switching to a ford engine that came in the fast ST focus....well not a stroker in the ST but can be built to be a stroker motor

2.3L stroker motors is easy to do.

With a Kugel Komponents kit a 5.0L and 5.8 liter are able to fit... With the 5.8L you can go up to a 427". So it just depends upon how stupid you want to be....

I don't think a 2.3L conversion would be that great of an idea...too much work for 20 HP. If you're swapping engines might as well do something exotic.

^^^ Got to agree. If you are going to fork it out for the conversion, do a V8...

Will the 4.6L Mustang V8 fit?

With enough money anything will fit

If ya want a 4.6L, go ahead and get the 5.4L SC'd. My bud Steve had one in his Cobra that made over 1000hp on race gas.
