Focusfest motivation build

Sinse this is the first time in 3 years ill be able to partisapate or however its spelled i decided to finally finish my build the way i want it to be done and hey look i only got 30'days to do so...

Cars ready turbod with a great setup trans is set yhe way i need it full traction bars underneath just have a few important things to do i wanna shoot for low 11s on friday all day my best time as of now is a 12.7 so i think its a good goal

Check list

J.e / eagle piston rods combo
Get tom to tune the car =]
Get the 2 step launch control hooked up
Head work if time is still there and im not broke
Locate slicks
Get it assembled while workimg 55+ hours a week
Then get the car saftey checked to make sure i dont injure myself

Part hunting starts today if i can get a break on the piston rods and not spit out 850$ then this should be quick all help lovcating parts and any input or other ideas is appreciated

And i might spray the car cause i got bottles laying around everywere ... Shhhh ;)

Nice man, can't wait to see it on the track at FocusFest! Would SVT pistons/rods work for you?

See i was thinking that yes but i was never able to get answers on if there is alot of fabricating with those or if there is other required parts and would i be able to push 13psi out of those safely cause that would make me happy i guess and be cheaper for the time being

I have heard that they fit the Zetec with no mods, see if you can find out for sure because I have a set that I am not going to use.

Got the looks and the go! I really like that kit, it all flows together well and makes it look like it hugs the ground more.

I also can't wait to hear this at FocusFest!

The SVT uses high compression pistons and forged connecting rods. I'm not sure if you want to use high compression pistons on a turbo build lol but they are able to handle 275-325whp.
