I dont think u stand a chance of findin a Foci RS engine mate,and even if you do get one,the conversion would be uber expensive!

Its been done! The guy did have pics and vids up on that link u gave but they are no longer working (the site obviously doesnt re-host 4 U like CW)

No matter what it costs dont be put off by where it is. Your willin to spend 5k+ on the job but ur put off by a 250 mile journey and a 30 pound train fare home?????? And your gettin the best workmanship ever if you go to pumaspeed (the top ford tuners ive heard of)

Thing is, your gonna need huge brakes front and rear,pretty much all the chassis will need seem-welding or the chassis may buckle in the middle as it flexes under acceleration.And the engine bay needs doin too.I doubt this will be included in the price but they will recommend it as the next job.when u plannin to do it?

Hayles85 - Bout time you posted something up!
(This is emmas bf btw)

Your looking at mega money to stick this in like I told ya - you need a front end of a focus RS and considering they dont make em anymore and limited, there expensive. Iv been trying to get hold of some bits and the guys i know wants 200 just for the rear beam!

If i think on ill do some digging around but if your after peformance then your best off buying a performance car to start off with mate, remember the golden rule: 'Theres no replacement for displacement' in lame terms bigger is usually better

Engine, gearbox, wiringloom, ECU, driveshafts, struts etc Basicly a full frontend of a Focus RS. You may find u can get away with certain parts but BARE minimum would be engine, box and loom.

Mega expensive and to many its just a dream.

Sounds possible from the above, but also sounds ****ing expensive, when there's nowt wrong with the RS Turbo engines.

Miek raises the best point.

Conclusion is-it is possible.....but only do it if you have money to burn

Id recommend gettin an RST 1.6 and fully workin that, for 3k you cud have it in and modified to 240BHP+ with the brakes and suspension worked as well for that money.
