|Comments:||Engine seemed readily available when we started, but Ford stopped making
them available via their "crate motors" program and the car went out of
production. A racing series of midget cars had standardized on the engine,
which made RWD conversions available for the normally FWD/transversally
mounted I4, but it also ate up supply! Thankfully Tri-C located a wrecked
low mileage SVT Focus and we had ourselves a donor car.
