Exclamation Engine Swap

Just curious on how I should go about this next mod to my focus. I have a friend who has a Straight 6 Supra engine, and I want to swap that out with my stock 2.0 Zetec, and run rear wheel drive for it. Any thoughts on how to go about this mass mod!? Have a great night!

Aside for ALOT of cutting, welding, and just changes to the WHOLE car. If you got the money and the motor go for it. I have seen whackier swaps. The money would be better spend elsewhere. But if its what you wanna do, make sure you have another car for several months. Probably what I would do it. Go to the yards and see if I can find another supra to install in.

you might as well just buy a turbo and forget about rear-wheel drive.

single wiper mod...thats like 40hp

but all aside, its not gonna happen with MAJOR, and i mean major body work, the supra/tranny combo is not tiny, believe me. as for the firewall, that would need to be knocked back, and so would the center console and dash work, then a custom driveshaft...suspension, matching electronics with ecu, for the money you would be spending, you could buy a supra with single turbo conversion.

I'f your willing to put that kind of money into a swap, why not keep it Ford and drop the 4.6 Supercharged Mustang Engine and drivetrain.
