It doesn't matter what vehicle you use, you're going to need to have the PCM tuned. I wouldn't suggest swapping a donor vehicle PCM into your car because all the other computers have to be set to work on the network with the PCM.

The mechanical swap is not hard. I would look for an ST or 03-04 PZEV vehicle which shouldn't be too hard to find in your area if you look for cars from Green states.


Ford Focus Technical Chat is for technical discussions relating to general maintenance, electrical issues, engine trouble, and recalls. For other questions, like performance or engine swapping, we have other forums. Check out Duratec Performance for performance questions, and Engine and Transmission Swap for your questions on swapping your engine and transmission.

Moved to Engine and Transmission swap.
