Does anyone have experience with both cars to know whether this swap can be done.
I know anything is possible just wondering on suspension mount points and such.
Im getting a rearended MS6 for the swap 4360 miles, plan to put in Focus BIW.

Yes, I have a shop full. I posted the pics so I wouldn't get the "You'll shoot your eye out kid" responses.
There is a V8 swap kit but I like the 2.3 DISI swap idea. Here is something else available as an organ donor.

+1000. I've seen it done, and I know there are RWD conversions for the Focus

D, is that you?! It's Focused, from FJ :D

I don't have much to add as far as what info you're looking for, but I don't doubt you'll be able to work something out! :goodjob:

Hey Focused!
Yes it's Dan. I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a propulsion system. Might have to go visit some dealers and do some measuring. lol
I plan to document the build here if they will have me.

Thanks, not really sure on the BIW, Might just build to my liking and do SVTOA, PDA, and NASA events.
Just posted pics of a 65 Vette I have for sale. I think I have it sold to someone, pics were posted for him. But if anyone else is interested let me know.

been wanting to do a few nasa TT events myself, I guess you would be an easy candidate for TTU. ;)

that vette looks nice, but is needing a few things to spice up its love life, is it all original? looks like the bushings and most of the stuff in the engine are, but I was too lazy to look at all the pics so im guessing the rest is as well.

NASA is fun to run with, basically show up and they will put you somewhere.
Vette is mostly stock. Not perfect or Bloomington Gold material but very solid driver. I couldn't see doing a frame off and making it a trailer queen, doesn't get driven enough now.
Think it's on it's way to Alabama.

Thanks, just blessed with good friends who are car guys. Not to side track this site I do plan to buy Mazda Speeds so I'll eventually have something to offer. Glad to say I havn't seen a single MS3 in the Salvage circuit, seen about 5 MS6's but not one MS3. For reference when the Focus SVT came out there was about 2 a week wrecked.
