Kugel Komponent’s V8 RWD Kits for Ford Focus

Ford Focus With RWD V8

Kugel Komponents has been making Ford V8/Focus swap kits for a long time. Their kits enable you to run a 4.6 L or 5.0 L V8 in your Ford Focus and convert it to RWD. The full kit cost about $8,000 and includes engine cradle, transmission mounts, suspension crossmember, front steer and hub kit, sway bars, rack and pinion kit, transmission cover, fuel tank, headers, diff crossmember, 4-bar kit with shocks and springs. Of course you can purchase the parts separate if you want as well. Kugel Komponents estimate it would take someone with decent skill level about 100 to 150 hours to install everything.

  1. Hey I would like to know two things
    1) Do you guys also have the transmission to go with the swap kit too and the total amount with both the swap kit and transmission
    2) Would this kit be compatable with my 2014 focus.
