What model Focus are you going to transplant it to?

The MS6 driveline is nice.

Hacking apart a orange svt Hell I can have my ZX3 at your shop in a half hour after giving me the word

Only you would be up for something like this. And once again I'm really looking forward to the end results. Good luck with the project.

There will be no "hacking" here, lol. Hope to achieve a OEM finish when complete.
Dudes ZX3 thanks it should be a fun challenge.

Well once I get it on the lift I can size up the job. Just go issue to issue from there.
I dont think it will be that bad, may regret these words.
