What's the best engine I can fit in a Focus MK1 as I'm thinking of just running this 1.4 16V till it seizes which won't be too long away as it's burning oil at a fast pace, I was thinking of a 2.5 T5 Turbo engine from a ST or a RS engine (If it's not the same) if I can I'll drop the engine in and then wait a few months to see if it's fine and try and Rear drive it cause I know the ST engine's you can Rear drive if you buy a Volvo box as the T5 Turbo is from a Volvo anyway, so that's what I've been told, anyone offering to shed a little light on this?

i would of guessed an option would be the ST170 from the focus, as its in the same range so probably not much work, also have a look at the ST220, both of which are easily available compared to an rs or st
