Before I get too carried away with my visions, I want to make it clear that this is just an idea that (if possible and affordable) may be put into build status. I work with a bunch of mechanics and gearheads, and one of them finally decided to move to a real car. He used to drive srt4 neon, but totaled it and bought a Cobra Mustang. Anyway, he keeps giving me shit about driving my focus but doesn't care that I get about double the gas mileage he does and still has enough performance to keep up with him. Sure he's got me on the straights, but my Focus can handle the turns with ease while he has to be careful not to lose control.

My question is this, What would it take to upgrade my focus (or a junked focus) to be able to perform enough where it could hold it's ground against a cobra, but still maintain the corners?

I have heard of and seen V8s being put into a focus, and had become interested in the idea until I saw the price. I just don't have 15k to put into a little car. I'm pretty sure an engine swap would be necessary, so what kind of larger engine would fit into the engine bay, and what kind of mods could be done to it?
