Greenfox From what i gather we can use the focus trannys original guts and bellhousing half of the transaxle case, use the jaguar diff end of the case and jag center diff then use an escape irs or use a cobra irs with the jag diff mounted. Im going to do it guys. Might take me a year or two but when its done im doing a whole write up and video of the conversion and linking the video here as well as starting a new thread with the writeup and video. Hopefully it will become a sticky for anyone interested.

I do have several years of machining and metal fab experience so it shouldnt be a huge issue for me but ill try to do with it minimal custom work so the average joe can handle it

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.

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?
