Interested

Im interested in doing a 2013 mk3 n/a to ST swap; engine, transmission, ECU, front bumper (to match intercooler), etc. I found a wrecked ST that was smashed in the rear that would be a good candidate. After doing the math it would actually be cheaper to do this, instead of trading it in for a used ST.

Hey! Any word on the swap so far? I blew the engine in my NA Focus so I'm actually looking into doing an ST swap ASAP (it was my daily driver).

Unfortunately no new info. Nobody has even been researching, hence the lack of posts in here. Please share any info or resources yoy come across.

That's been done, the question here is on Engine Swap details.

I understand that part but wasn't there speculation on the intercooler not fitting and wouldn't it fit with that bumper?

My concern is radiator and actual condensor. There's a chance they may need to be swapped as well.

Did a little research and from what I've seen, the crate engine comes with intercooler, piping for the intercooler, engine itself, and the 6spd tranny.
