I don't see a 351 Windsor fitting into a Focus engine bay. I really, really don't.

Earned a focus with one on YouTube and told mustang motors only



"Earned a focus with one on YouTube and told mustang motors only" - no idea what this means, and there are other Mustang motors besides 351W. Focus is a FWD, Mustangs are RWD. You's have to tunnel out the Focus to convert it to RWD. I saw on on some Mustang forums there is such a beast (Focus w/ a 351) but it is a full custom.

Sorry ment seened and I Mean wanna do sum different and the budget is 5 maybe 6 grand don't want a Honda Acura or suburu...is this possible


I work on Fords more than anything else, and the Focus has to have one of the smallest engine bays I've seen in any Ford, not counting the Fiesta. Any install would be custom - new crossmember, all redesigned suspension, tunneled for RWD, new rear, subframe would have to be tied, steering moved/redesigned, all new electronics/harnesses, and being a 2000 - would not pass and emissions checks so no longer street legal. All that on a 5K budget? Not gonna happen.
