If it's put back together and is "strong" enough to withstand a bit of rough driving I don't see why not.
If it isn't in "good" condition I wouldn't do it. Like the condition of my SHO it's a bit old and worn all over.. with an mostly unknown engine/tranny history to me I'm not going to do it any time soon with it since I might break it.

I used to autox my Crown Vic but never my Focus but my Focus is the DD and I will start this year!
