trooper T/diesel blew at 205K
fixed with bear head from clear-water, FL. valves, gaskets, rings from rock auto...transferred all the guts over to the new head..
had to use spare short block from parts car, as it put a hole in the liner in about 10 sec......
original block is at the machine shop getting #4 over bored and sleeved back to STD, cost will be about $200 for just that.

i need that S\B fixed to get another SPI going. it blew out at 180K or so....
that will make for 3 fixed SPI's
and a 4th S\B to sell or put in another focus.

skidooman Just sold the 2002 focus I bought with 156k on it. Runs great. Was a quieter motor than whats in my 06 focus. Got a buddy that has 215k on his 02 focus and he has never touched it. Other than oil changes.

My SPI motor still goes

I made it from 124k to 139k, driving the piss out of it (few 100+ MPH runs). Now I turned the keys over to a family man, should last even longer.

5mt_lx Mine is an IB5.
Change out your trans oil with a really good one like Redline. It knocked out the noise in my Maserati and Mazda MTs.

Mandroid im already at 77k miles on my 03. how many of you guys have 5 speeds? i would like to know the life span of the ib5. mine makes all kinds of strange sounds...

5mt_lx Mine just turned 137,000 knock on wood no valve seat issue. Also, I bought it about a month ago, I had to do a full ignition refresh (coil and all) and it needs a few motor mounts. Running 5w40 Chevron Delo oil and no clue if T belt has been done.
That being said, I'm going to run it and hope it don't pop before the first of the year. That's when I'm going Zetec. But it runs excellent and gets great gas mileage. Just slow as balls.
