Thanks guys, should have done this from the start. Inside the oil passages there was still material from the first sandblasting done, 2 or 3 of the valves where not to specs either, going to check the oil pump and as soon as I get the arp flywheel bolts is coming back together.

Hey Italo, just an FYI. When I spin a tire with the trans in gear , the other side does spin in the opposite direction. The Torsen is worth every penny. That should be one of the first mods any one does. What a difference. How's the engine coming along ?

Thanks Rocco, the issue was while on neutral, turned out the Torsen is busted on the car I was comparing it too, he ordered a Quaife now, mine was perfect. Took a week off, spent it with my wife, 4 daughters and their 5 year old cousin that lives in Orlando, didn't do a thing but have everything, received the ARP flywheel bolts and this week should receive the ARP studs for the manifold.

Nice!! It's good to take time to spend with the family. It seems like the last few week , I spent more time with the car than my wife and kids. Lol. I think the wife is jealous of the Focus. Good to hear you have all the parts. Now , get it done !

Couple of things,
-new radiator (was blocked, potentially the culprit of the head gasket issue), new rack & pinion, rear main seal and new clevite main and rod bearings ( the material left on the head marked the cam and the bearings in the fourth cylinder), new metal valve cover and throttle cable, arp flywheel bolts and manifold studs.
-ordered Comp cams 273, turns out the cam marked was OEM, apparently the first machine shop, same one that left material in the oil passages, broke the FR 3 and replaced them with OEM's.
-Sold my turbo, thanks Bmylez, and waiting on a new one, hope is soon.

You have got to be kidding ? They swapped out your cams. WTF. I would of lost my mind. What did they tell you ? They should cover the cost of the rebuild. That's terrible. I hope you have better luck now. Who is doing the rebuild now ?

Lots of shoulda's and woulda's, Karl @ Massive told me to check the lift in the cams, some aftermarket cams use for core, just may be lucky, lol. It is definitely going to run and hard. Now a ff member, advance, is doing the rebuild, he has a zetec shop called Ponce Focus Tuning.
