So the question is... how much could you sell on your N/A engine for once you bought a crate engine?

So, I helped out a bit this swap before on a friends car. It was almost a plug n'play to get it running. Had a engine and tranny from a rear-ended ST and it dropped right in with the wiring harness from the ST. The mods are as followed:
-Removed plastic from front bumper and replaced with mesh
-Custom intercooler mounts
-Higher rated L/second fuel pump
-Ecu "reprogramming"

That was all that was needed to get the car running and driveable. However, gauges still needed to be installed and a few cosmetic things. Make sure to have an exhaust that fits the SE model with the ST dump pipe or you'll be cutting the rear bumper to make that center pipe clears it.

So the wiring harness plugged into the stock ecu? Who reprogrammed it, Tom?
Was the NA car a manual? Did you use factory ST intercooler and piping? Did it fit behind the NA front bumper?

I wouldnt get my hopes up, theres a lot of talk with mk3s, but not a lot of follow through. In the meantime if people help me fill in information about the swap maybe we can get enough to motivate someone to try.
I still have 30k left on my warranty. :)

The PCM might plug and play right up, youd probably be throwing a few codes unless you were to take literally everything out of the ST engine compartment (dont quote me though) Im not sure what all sensors are on the ST motor over what your putting it into also getting the the other modules to play nice since you are modifying it into a design that is stranger (not in the bad way) than Ford intended. If your already gunna be elbows deep in a wreck ST id pull the whole Instrument Cluster out and possibly that whole harness back there and rip out any connectors youd need.
I forgot who but somebody on here has thrown ST exhuast on an SE with relative ease so i think a muffler shop wouldnt be to neccesary.
I know there are a lot of very capable minds on this site that will have ideas way better than mine but im just giving ya what i know from my experiences and others i know.
There is a lot to an engine swap like this and your bound to run into snags thatll get you ready to chuck the idea but if its something you wanting to do i say go for it and have fun doing something you enjoy
also totally didnt realize there was a second page so if anythings redundant just ignore me

This was Eulsam's only other post and I'm afraid I scared him away:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/e...orth-swap.html

His post here mentioned using the ST wiring harness & not all was functional yet (gauge cluster) so it def. isn't plug-n-play for a simple drop in.
