I Need V-6 Swap Info.

Well the motor in my 02 SVTF caught fire today and is COMPLETLY TOAST! I sooooooo pissed. The alternator caust fire and fried my engine electronics and then there was a surge to my spark plugs and apparently detonated in the cylinders. The car is fine, just the engine is toast. Luckily enough there was a ricer civic that had a fire extinguisher and put it out. The fire wasn't to bad and the scorch markes wiped off the painted surfaces (thanks Mothers Wax!).

I cannot afford another SVTF motor, and I don't want to downgrade to a zetec or a duratec 4 banger. Soooo....I know there are a bunch of Merc. Cougars at the local junkyard. On a 50% day, the engine, wiring harness, and ECU would cast about $280. So, I need ALL information regarding this swap.

Costs?
Special Parts?
Will my Getrag 6speed tranny work?
Will my clutch work?
so on and so on.

Lets make this the Official Thread for the V-6 Swap.

Thanks for ALL your help.

I think he's about it...considering a V6 swap is pretty rare, and I think that Jeremy can account for 50% of all of the swapped V6 Foci in existance (he had a hand in 2 of the 4 that are know of.) His brother (I believe) has a Focus with a V6 out of a Taurus SHO, and his (which he is selling or has already sold) has the 2.5 V6 out of a SVT Contour.

I have had nothing but problems with this car for about the last year. I just went over my mileage for my warrenty so ford is not going to help one bit. Even though I'm only 1000 miles out of my warrenty. I had the altenator replaced once back in january and it has never worked right since. Next thing I know, there is smoke coming from under the hood.


I remember the SHOCUS in the FF mag, and I was impressed. I used to own an SHO with a Yamaha V-6 and I know how powerful that motor can be. I also know how much a pin in the but it can be. I just want a Duratec V-6 from a Cougar. Lateron down the line, I'll put th SVTC intake manifold on it.

This seems like an interesting site except none of the links work on it for me.
