Everything about this is gorgeous! Except that dent... Can't you pop it out? At least that deeper part... Or is there some structural support or something underneath preventing a quick fix?

Yeah you have a point. Regardless, I'm not gonna try and build a turbo nor stick a V8 in it. I think the ST swap should be a bit "easier" than the other 2 so as long as I source correct parts and do my research. The research part is still going on at this point. And saving for it is now a part of my budget. I am using my friend Dallas's GT500 build as inspiration. He also said he would help me with this swap. So, I'm not super worried, but as I said.... I would need a new daily.

You speak of fact where there is none. Vaccar did not 'build a turbo', they simply sourced one. If tuning was the only hold-back, there would have been a running variant a couple of years ago. Cars are built for SEMA, and a lot of it is simply for interest and publicity-regardless of running condition. This doesn't exactly qualify a proof of concept, and repeating it as such does not do anything other than perpetuate false hope.

Separate fact from fiction and try to perpetuate the former-not the latter. You are right in the fact that anything is possible if you put work into it, but in the situation described you are talking about the work-level of a professional builder. For everyone else, there's MasterCard.

Bad news is it's cheap. As in... not a perfect fit.
The side skirts were no problem at all.
The back is a little too big, and the front is a little too small. It didn't look like either of them were going to work. But I wanted it so badly I made those bastards fit.
Make an orange strip in front grille.
Looks a bit better.

I was debating on dropping a ls motor in my focus but I don't think I can fit a v6 or a v8 in my engin bay but hey maybe one day when I have a crap tone of money to do what ever I want to do I might buy a focus and build it out and make my own version of an RS but mid engin......someday......someday....
