    haha, yep. I moved out of suspension engineering a few years ago for product planning and strategic business development, but the years of engineering discipline are still there. It is no joke when people say sometimes you need to shoot the engineer and get a project done.

    Becareful with the 2.3 in the mustangs. They have some predet issues.

    But thus far the 2.0 ecoboost hasnt had the same issues. And it would be a sick beech in a fiesta.

    When I look at the 1.6 T engine bay, it's cramped in there.
    I doubt any larger engine would fit, unless you plan on compromising the crumple zone of your car, by cutting away parts of the frame.
    I mean, it's been done before...
    What would make more sense, is installing a twin turbo, have a tune done, and run on ethanol.
    It'd be about a $3k project, and a lot cheaper than an engine swap like mentioned.

    Might be better to think of welding the Fiesta's body on the Mustang's chassis.
    Twin turbo a 4cyl for $3k. I keep learning new things from you.

    I can so relate!

I have seen so many friends take a really nice car and try an motor swap. After years of work, they get rid of the car with the swap never completed. The car is sold for pretty much nothing since it doesn't run and is full of mismatched parts. They never come close to recovering the money spent. Instead of enjoying a really nice car, they turned it into a money eating, dust collecting, garage decoration.
    You should do another sema car with a second 1.6 ecoboost in the back :P

    Imagine the fun of sorting the throttle clutch and shifter linkages muahahaha

    Heh my first engine swap was from a wrecked challenger with a 440 into a duster with a spin rod bearing. Was too much engine for my high school auto shop engineering, but it was fun. Later did two v8 fieros, those were surprisingly easy and a heck of a lot of fun.
