Euro anyone?

So does anyone know of a company that imports the focus euro engines. More specifically the Focus ST turbo engine? Or has any one even attempted this mod? For nastalga sakes I would think this would be a cool mod, or should I just go with a Focus Sport 2.3 Long Block with a Turbo? Not trying to achieve astronomical goals just want to go faster with something not everyone has, but still Ford. No what I mean.

If you want the turbo I-5, you can get one easier from a Volvo S40 T5. Basically the same engine. But I haven't heard of anyone shoehorning one into a C170 chassis.

Turbo 2.3l, while not unique, is tried and true, and far far easier to do.

they have different engine mount placements... but it will fit inside..im not sure if you'll also have to change the transmission though. why dont you go for the volvo 2.0T.. its also 5cylinders but only 2.0L..its also an older engine so it might be easier to find rebuilt ones

save alot of money and just turbo the 2.3...you spend way more money trying to make it fit properly and getting the engine, and then have the same amout of performance as just turboing the 2.3
