Both V6s and V8s have been swapped into the focus. Search through the forums and you'll find plenty of info on it.

Honestly I dont see the point since you can already get one with a 2.3, Yes I know its a bit different but if your gonna swap an engine might as well get a much bigger one. Theres no replacement for displacement
