I tell you what I went to college and drove my Focus the whole time. I received grants to go to college and loans to live on and now I don't really have anything to show for all the damn money I need to pay back. Except my degree of course. Wish I would of spent any extra money I had on the car because now all my money goes to living expenses where as before college took care of a lot of those things for me (food and housing). I'm not saying to not go to college, what I'm saying is do the things you want now because your young and have the chance to do these things without the real world kicking you in the balls every once in a while. I see a blown engine as opportunity. Its great that your parents support you!

I think its sweet to see a V6 go in a focus and I can only imagine twin turbo and AWD being next somewhere in the Foci world! Keep us updated! And don't put a CAI on the V6 unless you by a bypass valve.

got the cams off today, and took the shifter and assorted BS out of the interior.
unfortunately teh head is bolted on with a dealer tool. since none of my torx bits would work, and neither would any of the ones at Murray's. so i'll have to drill out the bolts. (ugh.)
and yes, im getting a bypass valve, as well as avoiding small ponds posing as puddles.

they're not stripped yet, but they were starting to since the torx i was using was too small. unless someone knows what size i need, im totally lost and will end up just drilling them out.

I guess nobody read the posters Focus rally/drifting story.

If I was running the muddy back fields at night in a Focus taking
"rally vids" and "drifting into people" I also might reconsider college.
