Engine Conversion Focus 1.4 MK2 2005

Hi guys,

New to this so bare with me.

Basically yesterday my car stopped in the middle of the motorway, I got it to the side of the road and the engine was bone dry. Filled it up once I got it home last night and this morning I noticed oil under the car. This is something I always check and manage as I own a few cars and like to keep them very tidy. Turns out my oil light is faulty and not engine is seized.

My car only being a 1.4 2005 mk2 focus isn't worth alot so the insurance company want to write it off, but I have full RS body kits on it including the seats which are probably worth more than the car haha!

Of course I want to keep the car, I have a budget of 1,000 to convert it. Your all going to say buy a new one with more power etc but I genuinely just want advise about the best way in doing this.

I found a complete 2.0 lt ST170 engine with 6 speed gearbox, inlet and exhaust manifold, catalytic converter, starter, alternator, steering pump, air con pump, key and ecu. Covered 64k miles (my 1.4 has done 80k).
All this for 500.

Am I right in thinking I would possibly need Zetec mounts out of a mk2? If mine don't fit. And driveshafts. My brother in law works at a scrapyard so these parts won't cost me much.

Parts will cost me 600, I will get the wiring done before the engine goes in. Me and a couple of work mates will be doing this, one being a fully qualified mechanic.

I think I have everything but I just want everyone's second opinions and thoughts, or what else I could put in on my budget. I do want the extra power as I have about 80bhp at the moment under an RS shell.

I'll add anything else I think ive missed off as I have a feeling I've missed something I wanted to put.

Appreciate any comments

Looks nice, I can see why you want to fix it up & better than before.

Covered all the items I could think of, we're not familiar over here with the MkII version you got but that list matches what would be needed to do the same to a MkI type.
