I'd trust the man --he's an old family friend -and I'm not even considering going FI on the SVT engine.

I don't know what was done because I don't know jack about fuel injection cars --this is only my second car without a carburetor. I'm a N00btard about Focuses.

BTW --I didn't spend a dime. My Focus was a gift from both my mother and my mechanic. I just lost the automobile love of my life --I had a customized 1986 AMC Eagle Wagon that I rebuilt with the help of some old family friends. I trashed my transfer case beyond repair when I was out camping, and since the Texas star transfer case is impossible to find --my family and friends got together and gave me a car that I could get through law school. It's a nice bonus that the focus gets more than the 8MPGs my Eagle got.
