I was informed on Friday evening that i was missing a part. The part i was missing was the oil filter replacement cap for the remote oil filter relocation kit. I was able to get in contact with the guy i bought the kit from and he verified that he had it and was shipping it to me. As insurance and for the sake of my car, which is torn apart at the mechanic's garage, i overnighted an oil filter relocation kit from JEG's. I get it tomorrow afternoon. I have the baseline tune in hand already and all i have left to do is finish up my gauge pod fabrication.

Crossing fingers, but i should be all done before the meet!

Well ... I worked on the car again over the weekend ...

Still not looking good ...

With the Help of Paul and ... Coty (Long time he popped up) ... we have replaced the Fuel Pump, Fuel Filter, Check the Fuses, Swapped the Coil and Coil Pack, Replaced the Crank Position Sensor, Checked the Fuel Injectors and replaced a hardened pipe ....

Have a whole thread on this in the technical area.

Joy ... and before that ... the Alternator, Battery and Serpentine Belt ...

Well ... this weekend before Sunday ... we will do the Timing Belt and check timing ... and hopefully the Focus will live again after that.

And even after it lives ... I will have to do all the good ol Maintenance before I feel comfortable taking it out. (All the fluids and electrical checks)

..... Let's just say, I feel like I am rebuilding the whole car before the motor.

But back to the meet ... I will try to be there as well ... at least to take photos.

You know Raymond I have that same feeling about my car with the whole "car before the motor" thing with my car lol . But I already did it lol. I want to check your charging systems I just got an idea about what could be wrong

I also got my tune installed and I think the headlights came in today.
The tune made a huge difference. My bog off idle is completely gone and she steps off so nicely. Also found out I need control arm bushing bad!!! Along with a LSD but that won't happen any way. Bushings are cheap so I"m changing those next and I'm almost certain that my 60ft times are going to go down.
