i have a 2005 focus ZX4,,i was wondering does anyone know the difference in bolt patterns between the 05 and 03....is the bumpers a different size or are the screws not in the same place or something? cause the body kits for the older focus's are alot cheeper and easier to find...also,,anyone seen a turbo kit for the 05 duratech engine yet? i recently bought a t3 turbo but still need the aftercooler and all the plumbing and wires and all that,,,,was thinking about taking out the battery box and moving it to the trunk and mounting the turbo there...any ideas?

a body kit from an older focus wont fit, unless you want to change out the front fenders, headlights, hood, and bumper... not to mention a slew of other goodies

the headlights on yours are a different shape than the 04.... because of the different shape of the headlights, the bumper, hood, and fenders are a different shape too... the grille.. im not sure on.. but i assume the brackets from an 04 are diferent than an 05...

Yup. The Sedans are not interchangeable at all afaik. The rear bumper may mount up but it'd look strange because it wouldn't line up with the updated decklid and taillights. The front end items will mount if you transplant the entire front cap from an older model. F2 has a kit for the 05-07's that is based off of the Focus RS here: http://f2cars.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=84
There's also a widebody kit but that requires a good deal of body work to roll the old fenders and install the new fender flares seamlessly...not to mention having to get 40+ mm offset wheels to make it look decent.

FocusSport and HiBoost make turbo kits for the Duratec.

Don't have a link on hand for the HiBoost kit, sure someone else does.
