GodLovesUgly Race cars always break down and then get fixed, just make sure you check your work with a fine tooth comb!
I say flog it!

TheStig728 ^^ yeah thats my main concern, if its gonna be strong enough or not. i mean its a rebuilt head that is "suppose" to have fixed the valve seat issues, and i know all the other parts that im putting into it are good (new). the only thing that would really break (besides the head..again) would be the thermostate housing. ford doesnt seem to make the exact type thats in my car right now anymore. my old one snapped when we were pulin the head off (my bad) and when i entered in the part number it came up as a different part. autozone. napa, and my local ford dealers didnt have the correct one. so we plan on "fixing" the one i have now =). but i think im gonna try it with my DD. if anything ill just be slow haha

If it's put back together and is "strong" enough to withstand a bit of rough driving I don't see why not.
If it isn't in "good" condition I wouldn't do it. Like the condition of my SHO it's a bit old and worn all over.. with an mostly unknown engine/tranny history to me I'm not going to do it any time soon with it since I might break it.

I used to autox my Crown Vic but never my Focus but my Focus is the DD and I will start this year!

CGEO30 I had my TPS go bad last year while racing but don't think the racing caused it to go bad any sooner. There's no way realy know if racing caused or helped it go bad. Usually a TPS would be a quick low dollar fix BUT NO. Since I drive a 2001, you can't buy a new TPS. You have to buy a new updated throttle body with TPS. So $190.00 bucks later, it's all good. Still, I don't blame it on the racing. It could of gone bad on the way to work and I woud have still needed to make the upgrade.

USARice I say if it breaks it was going to break anyway. Better sooner than later. Had a guy blow a oil filter gasket once on the track. That sucked. Gave him a ride to the nearest auto parts store and helped him fix it. Never had a problem myself.
