yeah i am using the rack and pinion off a mustang. it will mount in front of the engine on the crossmemeber. i will have to figure out something as far as mounting it to the spindle but that will be after the engine is running.

no, it will sit low. i want the wheels tucked as much as possible. i dont want monster truck stuff

the oil pan on the car is the same height as the factory focus oil pan. the only problem i might have will be the exhaust. if it is to low i will change it.

yeh, from the last couple of pages u had some custom setup with the exhaust somewhere in the engine bay? like it was in the front...

and usually v8 swapped focuses, usually have that "stock-height" look after they're done with. glad thats not the case.

yeah the down pipe goes in front or the engine because there is no room for a 4" exhaust and a drive shaft under a focus
