2007 Focus

So I have a few questions about my 2007 Ford Focus. First is there another engine can put in it besides the 2.0? I feel like this could be a fun car if its possible. Second, is it possible or worth the time to convert it from a FWD to RWD?

In the world of hot rodding, nothing is impossible if you have the time, talent and finance. It's just that some things are more difficult than others. The real question is, is it worth it to you?

Re: 2007 Focus

How are your welding skills? You'll need a hum to accommodate the drive shaft, a revamping of the front end to support an inline engine as well a rear differential. Space for the tranny at the fire wall and in the engine compartment for what ever block you use. You might need to re-enforce the springs all the way around for the added weight. There's quite a bit of planning for this, how big of an engine are you looking at?

Easy to drop the 2.3 into it . Big job and big headache to change to rear wheel drive .

Re: 2007 Focus

Not looked for a while but we used to have plenty of magazines over here in the UK specialising in dropping big engines into Ford Focus variants .Usually with a walkthrough with pictures .Sure there must be something similar in your neck of the woods .

Re: 2007 Focus

My welding skills are pretty decent and i was just curious on how big of a job it would be is all. I dont have anything planned yet. Just looking around to see what others opinons are.

Re: 2007 Focus

I dunno, if your going that far, I think I'd rip out the back seat and put the engine there.
