One of those "is it worth it" questions.

Given an '05 car to swap the entire drivetrain/wiring harness/computer etc. - sure.

Engine alone - nope

Thanks, Sailor. Here's the deal. My 2005 Focus has a frame that's badly rusted. Really bad. Engine and tranny are both great. The 2000 focus has quite a few mods including air filters, suspension, rims, etc. But it's got a knock in the engine. So I just have to figure out if it's worth it like you said. Thanks a bunch

Both cars on hand makes it more reasonable, now it's just down to whether you have the time to do it.

Here's a recent successful thread that's similar:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=367473

If it was trying to put an '05 J/Y engine in the 2000 the answer would be no, won't work so don't try.

My '04 isn't badly rusted yet, but it's only a matter of time. Dream "mod" would be a southern body someday for a complete rebuild.
