SVT / Procharger - Just double-checking some things

I am about to install a Procharger with a FMIC on my 02 SVT. I am soon to either get a remote tune or dyno tune (won't be driven until tuned).

1. Is it imperative that I get a J&S Safeguard? Tom suggests it but some dyno people don't think it is necessary. I am running out of money, everything below is already purchased.

2. AEM - Can I just use the rear O2 hole on the cat for my AEM sensor? I have heard both.

3. What is the gap on the plugs? I have the motorcraft plugs.

Thanks guys.

1) In my opinion the J&S is a MUST any dyno tuner that says it isnt shouldnt be tuning your Focus
2) Yes you can use the rear o2 hole , I would take the CAT off and use a HFC or ORP the stock CAT does not like the richer AF of FI and will go bad and when it goes bad could hurt your engine , Be very carefull who you let tune the SVT Focus or you will be looking for an engine
3)Gap depends on boost but start at about .040

All right then.

I did not know that about the cat Tom. It rattles right now anyway, a HFC wouldn't hurt, just a money thing.

Well, looks like I will save up for a cat and the J&S and just hold off on the install or put it on the good ole Credit Card.

I need to decide soon, I just looked at my belt, need a new one really soon :(

Becareful useing the credit card. It can get you in trouble really quick. esp with boost. But im guessing you have a good source of income. Just lookin out.

Yeah, but about to get a second job anyway.

What exactly does the J&S do? Maybe someone could translate the link below. I know it has to do with safety and timing.

If someone buys at my price in the Parts and Accessories section, if not, it is going on.

I was going to put it on but I have yet to buy the J&S and I don't want to blow anything up. I want to do it right or not at all.

J&S is a must. Had a local shop tune the car with NO J&S. Lost the motor later that day....

Had them rebuild it TWICE!!!! Motor Failed both times.

I removed, sent to TOM Tuned Remote VIA Tom car is running GREAT!
