^^ instead of saying that, just cut your damn hands off if it keeps you from posting. I cant stand it when thats all the post is.

Though I do agree we should have searched here, Im happy to answer repeat questions.

Probably the best platform to adapt to the focus is of the DSM type... transversely mounted engine, compact space, abundant (especially in jdm swap kit form) cheap depending on the setup and still fairly light and with good handling.... it just hasnt been done yet.
