Engine parts for 2012

will any of the engine parts for 2.0 liter 2008-2011 focus work in a 2012?
I am not expecting big parts to work, but things like spark plug wires.

there were lots of changes made in the new focus, the last model and the new one don't share too much for parts.

and you don't have spark plug wires, you have a coil on plug system.

08-11 didn't have spark plugs wires either, Focis haven't had spark plug wires since 05.

You're going to have to wait. GDI changes a lot, but the worst part that changed was the programming language. Ford started using a new language, new hardware, and nobody has a flash programmer for it. Future modifications might end up being like Mazdas where you have to purchase an aftermarket computer to replace Ford's. It's very annoying, they should build their vehicles to be modified aftermarket instead of doing things that seem purposefully intent on preventing owner modifications and such.

Why should the OEM's(Ford Motor Company) build vehicles to be modified?. There are too many idiots that just modify anything and everything and expect Ford to warranty their screw up. The increasing fuel economy and emission regulations are not helping matters either. FRPP already has a cat back exhaust, so be patient. If you want a factory built race car, cough up the big bucks for the Cobra Jet Mustang.
