Hi, is not that hard,the steps are similar to RWD just be sure to remove the big nuts at the axels ends before you lift the vehicle,they are very tight and is veryhard to do it with the car up in stands,disconect all wires, muffler ,gas lines lift and secure the vehicle ,remove both axels, you have to remove the lower ball joints and tie rod ends to disconect the lower control arm to remove the axels , starter, motor mounts, the bolts that holds the trany,and the bolts at the convertor if is automatic,

Labor cost for changing an oil pump

this question sure depends on make and model car , rear drive cars can usually be done without removing the engine from car in less than a day , but most front wheel drive cars no way you can access it while engine is in car this makes it a two day event , I do question ? why you think you need a new oil pump ,U know if engine ran more than a few minutes without proper oil pressure , its sure to be well worn out internally , id sure be looking real carefull for metal bits in oil that's drained from car , coffee filters are perfect for this task , most times this requires a engine swap !!

How do I change engine cradle

First you would need to support the engine with a front wheel drive designed "engine support craddle" You will need to find at least two areas of the engine, right side front and left side rear or visa versa that can be used to mount the chains or brackets to support the weight of the engine safely. You can purchase a cheap engine support craddle for front wheel drive vehicles at your local auto parts supplier. It is really not too difficult to do but depends on what service you are going to perform on the vehicle. ie: craddle damage or transmission work ? The craddle usually supports the engine by using the inner edges of the front fender mounting areas and front radiator support and cowl inner lip area. Good luck !

Clutch installation maual for 2000 ford focus ZX3

Don't have manual but here;

the clutch is located between the engine and transmission. Therefore you must separate the engine from the transmission to gain access to the clutch.

This is much more difficult on a front wheel drive vehicle.

On most front wheel drive vehicles the easiest way to this is to remove the engine and transmission as a unit. However on a front wheel drive vehicle the engine and transmission come out from the bottom. You disconnect all of the hoses, wiring, linkage, etc just like on a rear wheel drive vehicle. You disconnect the suspension and steering. You disconnect the front "K" member (front sub frame). Then if you have everything disconnected properly you lift the body off of the drive train. You can then separate the engine from the transmission and service the clutch. You reverse your steps to reinstall the engine.

As you can see this is much more involved than accessing the clutch on a rear wheel drive truck where the transmission can be removed without removing the engine.

There are a few front wheel drive GM vehicles I have seen where the "K" member can be removed in pieces. On these vehicles you only remove half of the "K" member and you can remove the transmission without removing the engine. Not sure if this is possible on a Ford.

What Performance Engine modifications can i get done to it

The possibilities are limitless, I have done many many swaps. My favorite is the H22A, thats a 1992-1996 Prelude into this vehicle. But you can pick almost any fast 4-cylinder front wheel drive honda, the integra GSR is pretty awesome, uses a B16 Vtec engine. The only thing you need is money. :)

Thinking about an engine swap

yes you will have to change the computer. the rear diff wont have to be changed if the front diff has the same gear ratio.the entire front end suspension will need removed so tha you can mount the four wheel drive differential this most likely will require custom modifications. and the whole process will be very time consuming and expensive
