    Figured it's about time to post up an introduction thread.
    New member from Calgary AB-recently picked up my first Mustang-Lazer Red '94 with V6 and no options-no AC, no power anything except mirrors.
    Came from the Focus world-still have the V6Mistake which is a 2000 Focus ZX3 with a 2,5L V6 from a Contour SVT and a lot of Euro influence.

    As I bought the Mustang...

    Combination of stock Focus and Contour parts and lots of money! No kit available for something like this.

    I'm curious how this focus would run against one of the 5.0 swapped focus's. :)

    Well it's probably at 200-205 crank HP and 165 tq. powering the wrong wheels!

    Anyway I have started picking up parts for the Mustang.
    Bullitt wheels test fitting...

    Also have replaced springs, installed a GT dual exhaust and a Pacesetter H-pipe.
    Have a complete S/C supercharger setup that I am prepping as well.

    Oh look at that focus! Dood you nailed the looks! I love it! Your mustang build will be interesting to follow. What kind of direction are you concidering?

    Welcome! Nice cars too. The SVT contour is very underrated. And that swap looks factory-installed.

    Thanks! In my opinion this is what the SVT Focus should have been.
    As far as the Mustang its a DD so my plans revolve around drivability and functionality.
