It's probably like swapping an svtf engine into a zetec car. You pretty much need a whole car for swap parts.

This swap has finally been done, so I'm bumping the "how to" info thread with a link to the completed project thread:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/m...mk3-sedan.html

"sticky" for now until a better how to exists, just to give an easy place for discussion.

Does anyone have a write up on this? Im wanting to do it next winter and im having trouble figuring out what I need other than the obvious. I live in Alaska so taking a cruise to RDC is out of the question.

No one has a solid write-up. You would have to be in touch with Mike at RDC during the swap. That's honestly your best bet.

He seems to be a little tight lipped. I don't blame him he put a lot of time and money into it to promote his business. Swaps can be a decent way to recoupe costs.
It'd be cool if he sold a swap kit though (minus engine, trans, wiring harness and computer)

I won't divulge all my info on the Sedan Swaps, for Hatch, you get a donor and swap everything, and NO a DCT will NOT work as the engine harnesses are different, if you want to do an Auto, im game to do it, but wont divulge that info either. Thinking just an Engine, turbo bits and PCM is all you need, good luck with that. Hatch to Hatch is simple, but time consuming and tedious. My company specializes is Focus mods, conversions, soon lifts, and almost anything else. We have info we choose and choose not to share. Not trying to sound like a D***. But this company is my livelihood so if I shared everything i wouldnt be in business long..... Our conversion labor rate is the lowest you will find for all the work that goes into a conversion with better than OE quality.
