I have a vid on my home computer of a 351 in a ZX3 body. So yes it can be done. You will have to convert it to RWD tho. Prolly gonna cost a bit of money to do it also!

i know it has been done before .Everyone keeps talking like they have seen it but not actually done the conversion. Some company sells a kit for around 5k to convert it but i cant remember the name. No one has done it firsthand though huh? I went to sema in vegas this year and they had an 03 cobra motor in one and it felt balls out said it ran somthing like high 11's bone stock. I wanna see some f-body roll up on me with that kind of grunt.

For it to be a V8, you would need to find a small V8 first of all, 2nd, most likely would need to convert it to RWD, cause of the weight, and power..And you would probably kill yourself in a Focus with a FF V8, i'd go with a V6
