Hi everyone, doing some research on the potential of throwing an ST motor and trans in my focus wagon. i am well aware that this will not be a bolt on swap and will require som fab work. But if anyone has some information, even if it's bad news it would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully i can start this project this summer.

Actually some good news.

I've seen posted around here that since Ford is selling the engines through Ford Racing, they also have a stand alone electronics setup avail. to use them in cars that didn't come with the engine.

That sounds good but I'd probably be getting a wreck and going from there, cheaper and I get all the stuff I need. Also the electronics they sell on ford racing is for their standalone ecoboost motor from them. If you try to use it on a production model it will send a weird code saying incorrect key or something of the kind. At least I think that's what I read.

I'd also check to see if the cradle, suspension can be swapped over or fabbed/ moddit to fit.
