Very nice. I would recommend you got to Either CFM or Massive online to order the Timing belt replacement tools. Basically a bar that holds the cams and a pin to ensure TDC.

This is a huge help on a SVT Focus timing belt fix.

Also, look into getting new rubber connections for the Intake Manifold to the Engine. The original ones even at that mileage tend to collapse.

Good luck on the build, and keep us up to date. Would also love to see some photos of your re-build and revitalizing the focus.
