Dang man, only around $8,000 for all the parts, thats pretty hefty. I would rather go buy a stang for that much...Jees...but hey, it would STILL ROCK doing a big rwd burnout in the FOCUS

Last I checked for a V8 conversion (Cobra) the total cost was around $10,000USD plus shipping (big cost) and plus labor which will be HUGE!

www.fordracingparts.com has a catalog on there with the conversion parts, etc.

A v-6 would be sweet and probably a lot less expensive!

I can't evan say what you guys are saying..... Just thinking about the cost kills me,
A v-6 does sound like a better alternative but the v-8 would rule all !!
can you immagine..... a rwd focus at the track ?? holy sh** !!

I bought this car to build a focus is what I wanted to make go fast.
I also have a 4x4 Black F150 SuperCrew with 20s on it.I cant decided
on dropping a v8 in it on go with turbo on the 4 banger.V8 would make
more like a street machine but I want to stay with a tunerz style ride.
Why a Focus for one I work for ford,and I did want to spend $15,000 and up on a mustang that I was going to tear apart and build.I bought my Focus for $4000 cash time I sink another $11,000 it will kick some ass.I drive it daily but I dont have to.For $15,000 I'll have 350hp turbo
focus eibach suspension larger brakes saleen body kit(at the body shop now) and still get around 28 miles per gal.
but to do the V8 kit right I'll spend around $22,000 so I need to figure out what I need to plan for.
