amc49, thanks for restoring my faith in humanity. I am only sharing what I have learned from building and racing cars since 1976. I have built over 26 Zetec engines,including turbocharged and svt, over the last 10 years and not one has blown up. So I know what I am doing. My engine building methods, break in procedures, were passed down to me by very knowledgeable machinists and engine builder/enthusiasts. I have been a machinist for 30 years and there is no way an amateur can correctly mic a part. That is why I recommend plastigage, it is accurate no matter what I hear Turbofocus say. I only want novice engine builders to be careful and not get ripped off. I have never paid a mechanic to do anything to my vehicles.
