Is it feasible to yank out the zetec n drop in a mazdaspeed turbo engine from a crash protege/protege 5? If u can get an engine, wire loom n brain for a good price, is it worth it? would the mtx75 tranny work being that ford owns mazda n i know they do share some parts
THANKS FOR THE INPUT GUYS...

Not worth it. You could turbo you stock motor for less then the cost of the motor from the speed and end up with more power....

Ive worked on the stock speed motors, ther nothing great until you build then properly for boost.

I would love to find an AWD kit for my focus. I know someone made one outta a ford escape transmission and such and had it on a car at SEMA if I remember right... But thats the only one I have heard of in the USA... Where would I find one? Or is there a write up on whats needed and how to make your own? Any info would rock !
