do you have to get new guages or can you use the stock guages?
and do you use the focus ecu,new engine ecu and ms to controll it all or is it just the ms with the new engine ecu?
all wiring will be custom since the whole car is controlled by the bcm. i will be using all autometer guages stock gauges work by the ecu. megasquirt will be stand alone ecu, it will be controlling both fuel and ignition on its own.

if you went with a carb and distributor it makes it easier to do a swap because the engine will basically run itself. but it isnt my style. and there are a few draw backs for a DD as well.
