2012 Ford Focus SE engine swap?

I have tried to research on my own and found nothing so far, but i was wondering what my options would be as far as swapping my engine would be?

Would love to see you cram a coyote crate engine in your focus. That would be very entertaining for all involved

No just looking for significant power gains, i figure a new exhaust, header, intake and a tune can only do so much. I was looking into turbochargers but i wanted to weigh my options

Your kit was one of the ones i was looking into, i was also looking around on the forum for info about your tune. I would need to raise a considerable amount of funds before purchasing your kit or even thinking about a engine swap. But thank you for offering you seem to be a helpful person on the forums, but i dont have the money right now as im in highschool and am still paying off my car but i was looking into my options for down the road.

You can swap in a whole drivetrain from an ST and be unique but cheaper to just upgrade to an ST.

Honestly, if you were looking for considerable gains, you are better off selling your focus and getting something designed more for performance. You could get an 05 or so muscle car used. There would be a much larger aftermarket community. Our cars were designed more as eco cars

WOW have you looked around the Forums much , there is 300,400,500+ HP Focus over the years , many in the 350hp to the wheels , so what its a small cheap car doesnt mean you cant get support and make it very fast
