What year SHO is coming out of?

You're a crafty one, you should go big and do the 5.0 swap and have a RWD focus.

It will haul with the stock 220hp. Can you say torque steer?

Anyway, as far as I know, you're going to need everything. Engine, harness, and about four thousand other misc. bits and pieces. As for the transmission, I don't know if the MTX-75 can bolt up to the 3.0. I wouldn't be suprised if it didn't. What transmission (MTX) was available on the SHO...or was there one?

I thought it had the parts list but it has a tad bit of info on it. Oh and I'm not sure if you will be able to contact the person about the parts for it anymore since it was the guy behind FocusSalvage and his brother that did it...

^^^^Subframe work does not sound fun, but that looks absolutely crazy. I want it.

I realize what notching is, but I'm pretty sur that big hunk of metal is there for a reason...and adding a heavier engine while taking subframe away could cause stress issus. How much has to be cut out?

As for the custom axles, I think you can get them built by some companies...I don't know of any off hand.

As far as I know, you could get the custom axles from someone like Driveshaft King in Dallas. You'd more than likely need to give them the specs you need.
