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.

-Ray-


Just a thought but have you tried cleaning out the ECU ground and re-grounding it? Never know...

Wow I don't even know you very well but I can see this is going to be a love hate thing lol

I can settle for the being first out of the losers lol

How much are they charging for the install? Are they doing the tuning or are you just going to run the tune that comes with it?

mdgonzo101, ... hmm ... we can look into that ... Thanks.

And I am thinking I might just ride with Paul to meet ... seems the SVT will still have a few issues that would make me uncomfortable driving just yet. ... even if it does run ... soon ...
