curious about svt contour parts on a focus

i have a friend who just had a motor sieze in his svt contour and was wondering if the disc brakes on the svt contour will work to do a conversion on the focus.

with enough cash...you could put a jet engine into a focus (ive seen it!) lol yea they should fit IF you get the right sized rims to fit around them. thats the main problem I would think.

SVT brakes aren't a direct fit...you have to change the spindles on all four corners. I doubt the SVT Contour's front brakes would fit, but if the bolt pattern on the rear spindle matches the Focus' control arm you should be able to use them...the Contour used 4x108 wheels so the hubs would match your wheels.

The SVT Contour's brakes are smaller than the SVT Focus'.

They should have enough clearance for the job, but getting it to do all the stuff it's suppose to... that's beyond my knowledge. Shoot over to a SVT Contour forum and see what they have to say, or PM FocusSalvage, they have experience in putting the SVTC motor in the SVTf.

hmmm, that's an interesting idea, I'm gonna do some more research on this and if it's feesable (sp?) I'm gonna do it too.
