Mk3 Focus Installs/How-To

Mk3 Installs and How To

Since the Mk3 Focus platform first launched in North America in 2011 we have been exploring and modifying these cars. From S sedans to RS hatches, shift knobs and wheels to air suspension and engine swaps; we’ve tried a lot. Below are the links to every install, how-to, review, and more, ever documented on the blog. 

Note, as of February 2022: This page is still a work in progress so as of this time not every single article on the site has been linked below, and there are also some that predate the site which we intend to re-list here as well. Once it has been completed this note will be removed, and until then you can find more articles via the search bar or category selector at the bottom of the blog. -Bill
