I was reading an article about the 4.6 focus, and they reckon the focus almost seem MADE for the 4.6... requires not structual modification to get the sucker in.

Wouldn't mind one for weekend draggin

Re: V8 Ford Focus?

thats pretty spun out. I bet the first person to do that was totally amazed at how good it fit then :)

and about the drags, imagine how much fun it would be
If you put some killer exhaust on it, to take away most of the v8 sound it would be the ultimate street sleeper too :)
