Actually, the blue V6 is based off of a 2000 Malibu Blue ZX3. It just has the SVT bumpers and skirts on it. That, and it has a 2002 Cougar lump in it, but with the CSVT intake manifold.

It doesn't matter, though - it's just a neat thing to have. Personally, since I'm really a wagon guy above all else, I'm really tempted to pick up a wagon shell to swap the V6 innards. I would rock that proudly.

That, and I really would like to see what he's got going on, as I obviously haven't witnessed one of these in pre-built condition.

WOW I am just seeing this now, good luck with the swap man. Youll love the duratec engine, when the secondaries open its a rush everytime. You should also check out http://www.nautilusperformance.com/ they have the turbo kits there. Mine is going in about 7 months under the knife for the forged, pnp'd, 3l,and stage 3 turbo kit. I will settle for nothing less than 400+ hp to the wheels which is very capable with all the mods. Its gonna cost a pretty penny but hey you get what you pay for.

Anyways good luck man I love csvt focus's
