good luck fitting turbos in there with the contour engine. there isn't enough room on a contour for turbos, and I highly doubt there will be enough room with the contour motor. I'd do the V8 swap if I were you, but I would use the new 3v 4.6. that variable cam timing screams "TUNE ME". as far as the cobra IRS...save your money on that one, do a solid axle. the cobra IRS is junk on the cobra, it'll be junk on a RWD focus. spend a little more on suspension and you'll be able to hand almost as well as the IRS, and you'll easily out accelerate it
