sailor Does start to be like the V8 Focus - not much Focus left.

Maybe not quite like a 4WD based on a Jeep chassis....

Tundrafoci 2013 escapes are based on same mk3 focus chassis. 2.0/1.6 ecoboosts use it so id imagine it holds to at least 300tq. Some with larger turbo and tune over that. model so possible to get Not sure how it would it would fit into mk1 chassis.

sailor 'Based on'?

Got a Ford badge, that's about it.

ah1f39 2013+ Escape is based on the Focus and can handle 300+hp.

sailor The older Escapes at least were all a partial AWD setup, up to 30% to the rear on demand.

I saw one of the takeoff gear boxes split open on a stock one once - afaik it was an automatic version (up in the air on a lift) but that gave me a bad feeling for the overall strength of that system.

I had the same question. Is there an Escape setup/parts that would work or would the HP of a turbo setup break stuff?

As far as the cars built with AWD is you have no hassle in spending months if not years getting everything working correctly and by the time you get done with it you are bored with the project and want to move on. The SVT and Focus overall is a good car but it is just a commuter car. I'd rather dump 25k-40k in a one of a kind newer/older collector car that needs some work.

You can embarrass evo's and sti's without awd just start with a better platform or build the shit out of your focus.
That's true. I might as well just build the shit out of it. I'm assuming limited slip is absolutely necessary?

I don't see why not. with custom axles and cryo-treated diff internals....it's still using an MTX75 trans box, just with a PTO.....so it should handle around the same punishment the MTX75's have proven to stand up to.

I also don't see how useful 500+AWHP would be in a focus....given it's weight and wheelbase, 350awhp will be more than enough to really boogie in one of these. STi's and EVO's still arent really breaking 350hp at the crank from the factory.....a 350awhp focus would walk all over them. More power that that and you'll just be fighting wheelspin and other BS.
