Hello From South Dakota!

Hey everyone, I am new to ford focus cars and obviously new to this forum.
I recently purchased an 05 focus for my daughter for college, which she promptly (within 4 days) ran it into the rearend of a van, destroying the headlights, bumper, radiator support, radiator, intake manifold and various other parts.

So, I went and bought a parts car with a bad engine, but i am unsure on which direction to go, engine swap or front end body part swap. I am here to get opinions, hints, tips and tricks! Thank you for having me!

Greatings from central SD!

It really depends on how bad the damage is. Are the frame rails damaged? If so it might be easier to swap the engines. Detailed pictures would be helpful.
