This is really peaking my interest. less than 4,000 for a decent looking Mark 3 with a 5speed. From all my research the 2.0L and the MTX ( 5 speed) are the same between 2008 and 2013.... but when I stripped my Mark 2, I kept everything... power steering pump, alternator, starter, AC compressor. Did Ford change these components or is everything from the Mark 2 reused in the Mark 3? I already purchased a 2011 for the little girl who turns 15 this year... but I'm looking for another daily driver.... since every time a daily drive my 1996 Bronco I'm afraid some asshat is going to run into me.... and 15 MPG on road trip gets old fast.

Not exactly sure what your question is, but if it's in good shape and doesn't have ridiculous miles, that's a steal. The 5spd MK3's are very reliable.

I have almost a compete Mark 2 sitting in my garage. It is totaled due to a rear end collision... so I pulled the motor, transmission, and all accessories. The plan was to find another Mark 2 with either high miles or a blown transmission to make my daily. This Mark 3 above has high miles ( right at 200,000) but if all my parts will bolt up.... it would be worth it. If nothing matches up from the Mark 2 I will continue my Mark 2 search.

If you ever want to know if a part is 100% compatible with a vehicle go to RockAuto, and click on the part number next to info it will show you all the vehicles it fits.

I looked at some of the parts you listed and the answer is no. The 3rd generation focus has electric power steering, so no power steering pump.
