I want to do this conversion so bad!

I have a perfect Engine and tranny ready for it as soon as I find my Doner Focus.

I also plan on going with the Kugel Kit.

I know everybody has there feelings on this. But my Idea is to have a DD Focus that has some fun stuff on it. A SVTF for a fun Driver. And a V8 Focus for the what the hell was that?

Plenty of people have done it. There's a current build going on right now on www.wvstreets.com, but it's a slow process for him.
Oh, and these cars are domestic, not imports.
