J0EC00L I was unsure why this was moved to a different topic.

My car is a sedan.

Is it cause I am not a member of Sedan Revolution?

How to join?

My 01 SE story

My 01 Se started out as a stock single overhead cam sedan. I was in need of a cheep car to daily drive. I was driving by a car lot and saw this little silver car that had 1200 on the windshield and I turned around and pulled in. The car looked like it was in great shape from the road and I though that's only 1200 bucks! When I got up on it I noticed that the driver fender was smashed and the driver headlight was broke. The salesman, who I knew from purchasing 3 other vehicles from this lot came over. He said the guy hit a deer. Other than that it was in great shape. No rust. I took it for a drive and it ran and drove perfect. I came back and made an offer of 800 and he said no. I then said 900 and im leaving. He said ok. I then said I needed to take it to a garage first and left with the car to a garage that could check it out. They lifted the car and it was in great shape and aside from the fender and headlight, there was nothing wrong. I called my wife and said we just bought a 01 Ford Focus. After getting the car I went to the junk yard and found a silver focus with a perfect fender and headlight. They cost me 125 bucks and a couple hours to put on. The paint was a perfect match. Now the car looked good again. The car had 157,000 miles on it but it ran great for 4 months. Then like all SOHC the valve seat dropped one day. The car sat for 6 months in my drive way while I did my research. That is how I found FF.
After the research I decided to do the SOHC to DOHC conversion and that is how it all began. I have posted a complete write up on FF to do the conversion from everything you need to what to watch out for. You can also see the progression of my car from stock to what it is today in a thread titled My 01 Se Body Kit.

Anyway. Here are a few pics of 1COBRA1
