the cammer engine from ford racing. a v8 crate engine made for you, ready to go. get your wallet out!
i am sure the ford racing website can give you more info, but move this to a different forum, this is for the spi equiped foci, not for info on engine swaps.

Dont listen bout the Cammer its like 15 grand and is just the engine. Check out www.kugelkomponents for all the parts needed to perform the swap. And what year 289 are you refferring to?

Ive been looking into the v8 swap and want it bad, but ran into a prob which is $$$. i only pay things in cash so i have to come up with like 9000 to do this swap. Im in my senior year in highschool and i have a job. Dont really have the time to earn 9000 in the time i need it. So now it was either turbo, supercharger, or what i think im going to go with is V6. This swap is 4000 installed with the engine and everything. Once i get it then i can get a turbo or supercharger rite away.

CONT'
What do you guys think about a v6 focus. The place i was talking to used a svt contour, but arent there better fwd Ford Manufactured engines you can use. Im thinking maybe the LS, taurus or even the falcon. What kinda eng. would you recommend. has to be fwd or id still be spending almost just as much as the v8

Why is the Cammer Engine so expensive? I mean Ford offers engines with more HP output for about 7-8 thousand dollars less!!
