So no you guys didn't scare me away. Was just working and didn't have service. As for the ECU I know it was a Haltech, but that's about it. And no to the factory intercooler and custom piping but yes we did make it fit behind the bumper with some slight mods (aka cutting) behind the plastic. Yes the car was originally a manual.

Well, if what you are saying is true, pics would be cool and lots of people are very interested in the progress.

I wouldn't imagine there would be any problems getting an intercooler behind a NA front bumper. After all, they do get the 1.6 ecoboost with the same front in europe.
Example:

See page 3 for intercooler, but everything in there is cool.

I'm wondering if you can use the Foccus for the BCM. I too had a thread on this but it didn't get as active. The electronics are the hardest part.

Theyre complex and nobody has touched them yet. It will be awhike still before anything really happens with these cars ("buy an st, way easier") but long term the ti-vct engines are the best option for the focus community. Woukd love to see an NA swapped into a mk1 and then turbod

From what Mike at Rebel Devil has told me, hatch and Sedan ones are different. But I still want to try the swap. I made my own thread on this too. Didn't know this one was a thing. I am in the process of saving money for this swap right now

Chico, I'm an hour west on I-5 in a town called Willows. So you're about an hour and a half away on I-5.
