Hey everyone! Just bought a '13 focus se sedan recently. Looking do to extensive work on it. Anyone would want to help me through it, as i am new to this, or anyone with advise would be greatly appreciated. Already been told its a waste but my situation doesnt allow me to swap it for st or rs, plus i hate hatchbacks lol. Starting this build in the summer.
Ideas:
Se to st engine swap
Auto to manual conversion
Fwd to 4wd
Rear drum brakes to disc brakes

Anyone has advise on these, or know if these things are even possible let me know. Gonna be a riot lol

Not a waste....buy an st? Naw m good....its.not a racecat but a few.mods have made it a lot funner to drive, look better....I have the basics in my signature for performance...hate to say but instead of swapping to manual, would have been better to buy one.....swapping to st can be done but you have to be.pretty mechanically inclined and acess to ford scan tools...or get a tuner like tom from focuspower.on here to get it working properly.

Tom cant do swapping to ST on Sedan (and he doesn't like the ST engine) , and its all the electrical thats the biggest issue

Give us some details when you're done, would be good to know what was involved, if you had to go to dealer for special programming or where you got custom tuning
