Motors in and runs good.

It does idle a little rough around I'm guessing 600-700 rpm but any thing over about 900 rpm it is smooth as silk.
Any ideas???

We are putting on a new IAC tomorrow and hopefully that helps.

We checked for vacuum leaks and found none. Its not terrible at idle but it does make your hands shake and as soon as you give it a touch more throttle it is smooth.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hmm, motor mount eh. I'll look into that. I did get the motor mount for the swap from the junk yard.

Thanks for the info

Any way to tell if the mount is bad?

If I could just get the power steering line above the header to be parallel with the valve cover it would look perfect

After thought

Was there the same number of wires or did you just match color wires?

What do you mean? What wires?

The harness? You have to swap the harness and computer from the Zetec also. Then everything is there and match the plugs up. I looked at another zetec to see where all the plugs went on the harness.

I did a very complete how to do the swap after I was done. Its on here somewhere.

BTW have you seen my car lateley? http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=280306

I am installing the Turbo this week. Already started.
