That is very true it's a good Idea to get it on the dyno and see the power curves and make sure it's not choking out

And the problems and headaches. I've only enjoyed 6 thousand miles of my new turbo and rebuilt motor

Oh yes just like the AMX I had Suspension, clutch, stripped a rear axle, then blew a rod the fun never stops. The only difference this time is I have a spare car for parts and plenty of cash

ok so
I got the 60lb injectors in all came out easy xcept for the one injector that fell somewhere its prob with the 15mm socket.
I installed the alum flywheel clutch preasure plate.
The shim for the trans diff roller bearing race is on order from ford(who is less than helpful also svt people)
I took apart the old struts and assembled new eibach struts and springs.
removed all bolts for the header(Not removed yet because dip stick) cut bolts for exhaust, oil pan ready to remove
that's pretty much all
Very few people seem to understand this car. The focus is so common but if it were not for you tube and this site it would be difficult to fix the svt properly. I'm glad I have a spare car as some parts seem hard to get.
