Are you by any chance planning to go to the BBQ at Massive Speed with Karl?
I don't know if I can make that, definitely not with the car. Maybe we can take my brothers down if we have time but it is still being tuned for the procharger right now.

Its over the 12-14th. I was going to host a grill out but I can no longer do it as we are going to Laguna Seca to test before the Runoffs in October. Focus guys are still getting together at the track though.

I had no idea you were posting on both sites! I am also researching the Radiator connector. Let's keep each other posted is we find anything. I really think hunting in a Euro RS forum might yield some results. Would probably have to come off of a wrecked RS.

As I stated on FJ AWESOME Build sir!!

The dimensions are definitely different from this to stock. So if you are serious about doing it you will need a full RS suspension change or some serious fabrication work. The other down side to this is Capaldi is all out of conversion kits now too.
I'm now searching for this part, any suggestions on where to try and order it?

TIA

Spazz0ut!

I was in bed sick all weekend and I stumbled across this thread. This is an insane build! Wish I had the skill, time or space to do this.

I actually post to three sites :) (one in the UK)

I am going to respond the same way here and I have checked just about everywhere. Nobody is really willing too split this connector up as it makes the entire Focus RS harness useless otherwise.

I am still deciding but most likely I will be splicing in a connector from the USA car. I spent a couple of months contacting people for the connector but no one is willing to part it from a harness. The only option I have found so far is to buy an entire harness but for $300+ and then having to redo all the wiring I already did I think I am going to decide against it. I wish I just would have started with that but I don't feel like there were a ton of these available when I started, nor did I feel like I was going to go this in depth with the build.

For the Part

I would check here first:

http://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_focus_parts_13/

What was this part by the way? I don't know part numbers off the top of my head and I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Thanks for responding thielt1, I was researching the RS carrier bearing mount that iminhell was asking about. My engine rebuild got stifled yet again, this time due to a problem with the stock Zetec carrier bearing mount not working with the replacement windage tray my mechanic procured with the replacement block. It's either not drilled right or not threaded properly so he's waiting on a replacement windage tray. He's not intimately familiar with 4 bangers, he's a big block guy.

I can find the part number as I have that info posted in my thread......

I really do appreciate the link!!!!

You and your build totally RAWX!!!!!! 8-)

EDIT

I stumbled across an interesting thread a few weeks ago and finally found it again since I'm again thinking about our RS radiator assembly connectivity issue. So I'm reaching out to this guy for both of us, he is in the UK and is trying to help people procure UK Spec parts. Maybe there is hope for us yet! ;-) I've emailed him and am anxiously awaiting a reply. If I hear anything promising I will definitely loop you in!!!!
