No clue, but you've come to the right place. Someone on here should know it, but I don't. Try starting your own thread though, not sure why you hijacked mine.

Vin 3 is Zetec 2.0 DOHC
Vin 5 is SVT 2.0 DOHC

I would confirm these to make sure

Haven't been on in awhile. Been putting all of my extra time into finishing my Bachelor degree and working in the shop. The project is still on the burner. Just need to get some capital so the shop can start on it. Got some other projects in mind as well, so depending on what shell I can find first will determine what I get. Hope to be able to get a shell yet this summer. It only takes time and money...

I have, but I have no clue how to make a Focus wagon look good, lol. If I found some way to make it look nice, then I wouldn't mind getting one. I can find sedans all day long, but I have a soft spot for hatches.

The same you do with any other foci make classy choices and add euro parts

That one isn't too bad. Maybe if it was a dark blue instead of the silver. Put some black rims. I saw a debadged dark blue ZX3 the other day. Black rims, nice tint, and very clean. I loved the way it looked. I think it's the length vs the height that turns me off. Looks too much like a wagon, which well, it is. I think if i'm going to build this, then I'm going to start with the body style I want and that is the hatch. Time will tell.

Just need to get these other cars out of my hair, although other projects are actually going to be paying the bill for this project.
