Thats awesome. Do they have any svt's? Looking for rear brake caliper bracket= the bracket that bolts the caliper to the spindle? 1 part fit either side= no left or right.

Hate to threadjack, but I'm in the Detroit area too. Where's this junkyard at? What's the name?

I just got my hands on a new focus and am planning on fixing up my zts for my kid. I need a few parts.

Does anyone have any pics of how to "tie" the flaps open? I have over 200k miles and im very nervous that one of these things will break off and ingest into the engine.

The imrc aka tumble flaps actuvator is below your throttle body. I found it easier to pull the tb off & undue the 3 screws holding the actuvator on & undue the linkage & then tie wrap the flaps open= up.

Ok, Thanks. Another question..... What is the purpose of said flaps? If I tie them open, what should i expect? Lower MPG's, low end torque gone......?

thanks
