Ford Focus RS8 w/ Cammer engine
Using the European Focus RS as a starting point, FRPP worked its engineering magic to mate its new, all-alloy, 5.0-liter 4-valve "Cammer" crate engine – cranking out a pavement-pounding 420 naturally aspirated horsepower – into the engine bay of the Focus. Although a handful of aftermarket firms have successfully mated Ford V-8 power with a Focus, the RS8 was built to show the versatility of a "Cammer" crate engine and "plug-and-play" engine electronics installation in a pure stock-looking Ford Focus.

The foundation of FRPP’s hot new 5.0-liter "Cammer" crate engine is rooted in the Ford SVT Mustang Cobra 4.6-liter four-valve engine family. However, the crate motor's flanged cylinder liners help provide 94mm (instead of 90.2mm) cylinder bores, creating a full 5.0-liters of piston displacement. And while the motor employs the 2003-04 SVT Mustang Cobra "Terminator" forged crankshaft with six-bolt mains and Manley "H-Beam" connecting rods for superior strength, the block itself is specially reinforced in the crankcase web areas for high torque loads.

Other key differences include forged pistons, an 11.0:1 compression ratio, ported heads, higher-lift cams and beehive-shaped valve springs. The crate engine also features higher-flow fuel injectors and a magnesium variable-geometry intake manifold, similar to the FR500 intake manifold currently offered in the 2004 FRPP catalog.

Ford Racing's new 5.0-liter "Cammer" crate engine comes with a stock SVT Mustang Cobra oil pan and exhaust manifolds, so an exhaust system – employing Ford Racing prototype metal-substrate catalysts and a set of Ford Racing dual-mode mufflers – was custom-fabricated to put the engine heat to the street.

One of the best parts about a Ford Racing 5.0-liter "Cammer" crate engine installation is that FRPP takes a lot of the guesswork out of the project by offering a choice of several length 5.0-liter 4-valve modular wiring harness kits that are created specifically to cover the most popular engine swap configurations. What's more, harness kits – which include the powertrain control module (PCM) – provide all of the necessary electrical connectors, including end terminals, a fuse box, a power distribution box, as well as switch connectors and fuel pump relays. The 5.0L EFI "Cammer" crate engine, including the wiring harness kit, will sell for a MSRP of $14,995 and will be available from the 2004 Ford Racing Performance Parts catalog.

Completing the RS8's powertrain is a Tremec five-speed HD transmission with a Ford Racing clutch kit and Ford Racing prototype shifter.

"Some sport-compact purists will likely never escape the four-cylinder mindset that keeps tuners and owners throwing bigger and bigger bucks at smaller and smaller performance gains," said Davis. "But we would like to think our 5.0-liter "Cammer" crate-engined Focus RS8 will somehow force the kind of performance paradigm shift that took enthusiasts from big traditional Muscle Cars to smaller, modern-day Pony Cars."

That fastback is really sexy.

I want that Fastback now!!

How could Ford enter a Ranger instead of a Lightning?

well now i know what motor i want.

87 Supra Turbo
I'm going to go ahead and assume that the Focus becomes a RWD car with that conversion right? If so, that's a freakin' cool car, and the exhaust outlets are very tastefully done.

Even better, they built if off of the European RS AWD car.

Oh baby :rock:

Haha Canadian pennies. :D

Too bad we wont see the RS here because we already have the SVT here in the States. :ghey:

I want a damn turbo, AWD, rally prepared Focus. :(

mustangdriver
We need a Focus RS in the US to go against the WRX and Evo. That would be fantastic.

If that was the UPS truck they used...I'd be down there waiting for that truck to come by!

k6kicker
11.0:1 compression and boost? huh?

mustangdriver
No, the 5.0L in the Focus isn't boosted as far as I know. Above we were talking about the Euro Focus RS that is AWD and used a boosted 4cyl. That's the car they built this off of, but they swapped in a V8.

AngelicOUTLAW
The fastback is beautiful! I like that panel truck too :thumbsup:

masestylez
That would be interesting to see such an accurate replica of an old car put back into production
